The Millwater South precinct is located northwest of the original Silverdale town centre, approximately 51 ha of land bounded by Wainui Road to the south and west, Manuel Road to the east and Grut Greens to the north. It is part of the wider Millwater residential area and is characterised by a steep north east facing horseshoe shaped valley with views of Orewa and the coast from the higher areas.

Kauri Park worked alongside Chelsea Landscapes and JG Civil to complete landscaping of a stormwater detention pond in this precinct, situated at the corner of Bonair Cresent and Grut Greens.

Shared Success

The planting at the Millwater stormwater pond took place in May 2017. The plants photographed have been in the ground for only 7 months but have already turned an eyesore into a piece of landscape art. They are already well established reflecting on the high quality of plants and implementation. Kauri Park are proud to have been the main supplier for the plants used at this precinct and have enjoyed working with JG Civil & Chelsea Landscapes with high quality workmanship.
