Flooding and harsh conditions were just two of the challenges facing the Neville Stewart Landscaping team when they designed and built this native garden and boardwalk for a property at Kaka Point. Owner, Annie Rankin says, “People still stroll/cycle past and stop and chat about the garden when we are in there weeding. It continues to give us immense pleasure and less back-breaking work now. It will be amazing once the ferns take off.”

At Neville Stewart Landscaping we craft unique garden and urban landscape designs. By establishing a close working relationship with you and understanding your lifestyle, we deliver exactly what you want for your property.

How many types of weeds are in your garden?

We gave a copy of Kiwi Gardener's Simply Weeds to a team member who's a keen gardener and asked her to identify how many different ones were on her property or its borders.

She reported back, somewhat embarrasedly, that the answer was 39. Some plants she hadn't previously considered to be weeds - like jasmine and honeysuckle. Others she actively encouraged like foxgloves and agapanthus.

But the National Pest Accord lists more than 100 pest plants (they can also include trees like sycamore) that are unwanted organisms under the Biosecurity Act of 1993. This means they cannot be sold, distributed or propagated.

Plants are generally added to this list because they have escaped urban gardens and now run rampant in the landscape or because they have a damaging effect on the native flora and fauna.

As responsible gardeners, we all need to do our part in removing these weeds from our properties and disposing of them so they cannot spread. A good source of information on local weeds is weedbusters.org.nz.

The best ways to avoid weeds are to choose plants that suppress them and to put down a thick layer of mulch. Or even perhaps start with a fresh garden design that keeps the weeds at bay from the beginning.

So, if a new garden design is on your Christmas wish list, do get in touch and we'll come and take a look.
