We have a passion for regeneration and revegetation projects. Eodem modo typi, qui nunc nobis videntur parum clari, fiant sollemnes in futurum.

Mirum est notare quam littera gothica, quam nunc putamus parum claram, anteposuerit litterarum formas humanitatis per seacula quarta decima et quinta decima. Eodem modo typi, qui nunc nobis videntur parum clari, fiant sollemnes in futurum.

Atawhai Native Planting

We designed and installed this native planting for some private clients in Nelson.

The site is steep, sloping at around 45 degrees.  While we were going to introduce irrigation to ensure healthy early growth, it was felt necessary to establish some very basic contour terracing to serve some logical purposes:

  • by filling the terracing with organic matter, we were creating a soakage system for retaining moisture and nutrient. The trees planted on the terrace and below the terrace benefit directly.
  • the terrace is a substitute for creating expensive paths around the property, each terrace is 4 metres apart and provides reasonable access to all parts.
  • the terracing stops stones and other materials rolling down hill!

The planting palette was simple and chosen for quick establishment: native pioneers being Kowphai, Pittosporum, Ti Kouka, Kanuka, Manuka etc with some infills of Ribbonwood, Hoheria and Pohutakawa.

We have seen great growth from season 1 and there has been quite an uptake in native birds moving on to gather nesting materials and generally being inquisitive. We look forward to updating progress in the following years.
