Arnold Street

The exotic plants of Sir George Grey found at Grey Lynn Park form the basis of the landscape scheme, which is a transition from exotic to native.  The proposition takes advantage of the close adjacency to the Park by drawing out species [silver birch] from the park and suggesting ‘guerrilla’ planting of these on the roadside bunds.  From the folds of the front garden through to vegetables and herbs at the back of the property there is an evolution from exotic species to natives, which create links with neighbouring properties where there are stands of significant native specimen trees.  Closer to the house there is an architectonic approach in the form of a clipped totara hedge.
