STAGE ONE - RESOURCE CONSENT
Produced conceptual landscape plans including mounds and screen planting, aiming to minimise the visual effect of the proposed Spa building from the road. 2007.
|Part of Landscape Concept Plans for Resource Consent application|
STAGE TWO - REFINING PLANS
Refined the plan for the gardens and landscaping around The Spa, once the building was nearing completion. Winter 2008.
|Overall concept plan - the plant list and quantities were taken from this rough plan|

STAGE THREE - PLANTING AND LANDSCAPING
Mad panic to complete before the Grand Opening! Organised delivery of plants, river stones, bob-cat hire, bark - then ACTION!! Our team worked wonders in a matter of days. (We have been told more than once that we would give the same amount of men a run for their money in work ethics and efficiency.......). Completed Winter 2008.

|The trees are Magnolia grandiflora and Totara - a favourite combination for foliage contrast|
|Flaxes and Coprosma on the mound|
|Leptocarpus similis - Jointed Clubrush in the stream bed|
|George's stony stream bed - a great solution to tidying a winter drainage problem that is dry in summer|
