The Garden Design Society Christmas Party
Ben Taylor from Reset Urban Design led a group of enthusiastic party-goers on a leisurely walk along the beautiful Milford to Takapuna walkway, visiting 3 award-winning pocket parks on the way. Incorporating useful local knowledge, the design and implementation of each park features basalt rocks, Peter Fell coloured concrete, seating plinths, showers and even dog bowls, with rye and kikuyu grass providing sea-resistant lawns, framed by mixed coastal planting. There is even an ancient buoy - not a single detail has been overlooked in the development of these popular and well-used amenities.
Champagne and festive Picnic Boxes in Sue Lyons' beautiful seaside garden rounded off another fabulous year for the Society.
