Greenwood Associates were contracted to deliver the landscape architecture component of this social housing project on the corner of Ryburn Road and Mount Wellington Highway in Mt Wellington. There were 3 houses on a 2,423 square meter site, which were replaced by 9 two-bedroom, 1 three-bedroom, and 3 four-bedroom homes. We worked on a multidisciplinary team to deliver the resource consent and building consent documentation required for the landscape, which included the planting and hardscape design for street frontages, a shared access lane and 10 individual lots. There is a lot to take into consideration when designing landscapes for social housing providers, we must achieve the urban design objectives required by the council, whilst providing low cost, low maintenance, safe, functional, durable and attractive solutions for our clients and their tenants. We are industry leaders in this field and have a proven record of delivering beautiful, cost-effective landscapes that stand the test of time.
