Hillside deck

Journalist Ady Shannon wrote an article on one of our recent native themed projects that was published in The Press and on www.stuff.co.nz, titled "Landscaping project was 'like piecing together a puzzle".

The property is on St Andrews Hill in Christchurch, and the owners both work for Clive Barrington Construction.  They wanted an easy-care, easy-living landscape design that looked mature despite being a new, post-quake rebuild.  

Now that all the heavy lifting is done (see the video here), we’re onto building the decks. On a steep Christchurch hillside like this one on Cannon Hill, decks are a good way to get some usable outdoor space. Somewhere for the kids to play and much easier to maintain in the long run than difficult to access garden beds!
