On Par

North Shore, Auckland

  • Brief: Design to accommodate the existing house, garage and motor-court, retaining some precious areas beneath large pohutukawa and oak trees and address the runoff from uphill neighbours.

  • The new garden incorporated the rustic nature of the wooded site and cedar, as well as reflecting the clients’ love of golf with a putting green and chipping surface.

  • The predominantly native planting palette includes exotic accents of flower and colour, which accentuate the garden’s smart-casual feel.
