Plant Choice

Over 4,000 plants including: Schoenoplectus tabernaemontani, Baumea/ Machaerina articulata, Typha orientalis, Phormium cookianum, Machaerina sinclairii, Austroderia/ Cortaderia splendens, Carex virgata and Apodasmia similis (Leptocarpus similus).


The Launch Rd pond planting is another contribution Kauri Park have made to the Hobsonville development. All of the plants used in this project were grown in the uniquie KPN ecotray – this was definitely a contributing factor to the quick establishment and plant growth on this project.

Shared Success

The planting of the ponds on Launch Rd, Hobsonville, took place in May 2016. The photographs profiled were taken just 9 months post planting, showing the success of the plantings.

Kauri Park are pleased to have supplied the plants for the Launch Rd ponds, and have appreciated working with Ngati Whatua Orakei Whai Maio Ltd on this project.
