22 Mar Takapuna Garden
The brief for this Takapuna garden was to create as much flat lawn as possible for their growing family (and dogs). Low maintenance planting, native where possible, and retaining existing trees was important – as was addressing the layout of an existing driveway and drainage. The existing site posed challenges with levels and overland flow paths, these were overcome with two large timber retaining walls, extended driveway and parking areas and raising the lawn height. All and all a very useable, family friendly space.
