The Greenery at Manakau has added Kapital Irrigation to its business, boosting the list of garden services it offers.
Kapital has built a reputation for quality over more than 30 years on the Kapiti Coast, providing irrigation and landscape services mainly for residential and lifestyle blocks, and even retirement villages. It offers a full range of services, including bore water extraction, pump and water tank installation and maintenance, sprinklers and drip water irrigation.
Kapital owner Ian Thomson says water conservation is a big issue in the district, especially in Kāpiti where water metering applies.
“People want to know that they’re using water wisely and that there’s no waste,” he says. “We can ensure that their water bill is kept to a minimum and that every bit of water used is effective for people’s gardens and lawns. And we can help them get the water they need no matter what time of year or what kind of weather.”
The purchase of Kapital Irrigation is a good fit for The Greenery. The two companies have worked together to help home-owners make the best of their gardens – Kapital getting the water in, and The Greenery providing garden design with the right plants in the right places, with good landscaping and mulch to maximise water conservation.
To see an orderly transition and to ensure the service quality is maintained, Ian is staying on meantime as a consultant to The Greenery.
