Inspiring ideas for using native plants in your home garden
Bring NZ native plants into your home garden. Visit Native Plant Ideas for inspiration for subtropical and coastal looks, residential courtyard plantings or perhaps a brilliant and different native plant border.
If you thought natives were all shades of green, there are lots of interesting cultivars available on the market, come and be pleasantly surprised by some bright colour combinations. The unique habit of many natives can be used to bring some real texture to your border and many respond well to clipping. Enjoy some playful and beautiful shaping; hedges of pittosporum and hebe contrasted against yellow balls of totara, clouds of beautifully clipped muehlenbeckia contrasted against linear flax leaves and architectural nikau palms.
All of these plants can be grown successfully in your Auckland home garden – come and learn more about design and maintenance. Clipping especially is fun and, if you follow a few simple rules, very satisfying. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or come along to one of our drop n learn sessions on hedging held during the year.
