Shared Success

The planting began in 2015 and continued over a 3-year period. Some of the plants are now into their 4th year of growth and are starting to make a real impact on the landscape. It is a great example of the vision that local Landscape Architects are having on beautifying New Zealand’s major roading systems, giving them uniqueness that is little seen in large roading systems in other countries.
