AUCKLAND GARDEN DESIGNFEST OFFICIAL PROGRAMME DESIGNER GARDENS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC DesignNeville Design Studio and Studio Naomi Rushmer | PhotographyScott Sinton 26-27 NOVEMBER 2022 PREMIER SPONSORS PRESENTED BY EVENT PROCEEDS TO gardendesignfest.co.nzAGDfest aucklandgardengardendesignfest
At last, we can welcome you back to the Auckland Garden DesignFest. Come and be inspired. After a three year covid-induced hiatus we present a wonderful array of diverse gardens in style and size for our sixth festival. Eighteen gardens all designed by professional designers, to showcase the breadth of talent we have in Auckland.
There are courtyard-sized inner-city gardens, terraces, sweeping lawns and gullies in older suburbs, richly treed gardens, heritage houses, gardens new and mature. There are lush gardens, quirky ones, gardens full of colour. Some old favourites have been included but most gardens have not been open to the public before. This is a great opportunity to see what imagination can accomplish in the creative partnerships between client and designer, irrespective of budget. The warm Auckland climate allows an extraordinary range of plant life to flourish,
from temperate to subtropical and all these gardens exhibit the depth and breadth of vegetation on the isthmus, in a range of settingscoastal, lakeside, suburban and tight streetscapes.
We are lucky to have such generous garden owners, happy to allow visitors into their private domains and to them a huge thank you. All proceeds are going to five wonderful and deserving charities; Lifeline Aotearoa, KidsCan, Garden to Table, Oke and Rotary Club of Newmarket Charitable Trust
Come along and meet the garden designers who will be in their garden creations to answer questions and explain their choices and rationale. Join us in this spring celebration of garden beauty and the wealth of talent on show.

Designer: Adam Evans
Address: 10 Manurere Ave, Takapuna
A layered garden which descends steeply from street to lakeside. The garden wraps around a sturdy 1970s house and pool, with the piece de resistance being the planting and path directly above and beside Lake Pupuke. Plant design by Kirsten Sach Landscape Design & Adam Evans from Urbis Landscape over a 3 year period of gradual extension and integration, has resulted in a rich mix of sub-tropical and temperate plants, both clipped and natural, as one progresses to the water’s edge.
Installation & maintenance: Urbis Landscapes
Designer: Trish Bartleet / Pip Cheshire
Address: 7 Winn Rd, Freemans Bay
A ’rumpty ‘private garden was the client’s vision and Trish Bartleet worked with architect Pip Cheshire and ardent gardener Aileen Cheshire to create just that. From a productive sunny front garden, stone pavers beneath nikau lead to the outdoor courtyard for entertaining, with its the small pool. Steps rise to an enchanting wild garden entwined with unusual plant combinations; a place for contemplation and solitude. Small spaces which demonstrate the ability to create magic even in such tight inner city locations.
Installation: Pip & Aileen Cheshire
Designer: Trish Bartleet / Sal Gordon
Address: 5 Winn Rd, Freemans Bay
A whimsical, edible and subtropical garden fronts 5 Winn Rd. Vegetable beds and huge drifts of Beaucarnea recurvata, (Ponytail palms), surrounded by mass plantings of unusual blue succulents, Draecena, Ligularia, Senecio, aloes and agaves. The back garden has a dreamy feel with nikau, feijoa, aloes, bromeliads, black Cordyline, Cycas, Medinea and a Brazilian tree fern. Tillandsia useneoides (Spanish moss) drips from the trees while side beds are punctuated with large corten woks. An orange pyrostegia venista hangs over the veranda.
Installation: Trish Bartleet Landscape Design & Sal Gordon
Designer: Damian Wendelborn / Trish Bartleet
Address: 8 Winn Rd, Freemans Bay
This more formal garden features input from garden designers Trish Bartleet and Damian Wendelborn. Green and structured, the garden includes a series of well proportioned spaces that sit comfortably around the heritage house. The design delivers well connected areas which read as crisp and clean. Pared back planting favours form and foliage over flowers, while traditionally inspired detailing and generous marble pool copings resonate with the heritage architecture. Pots and planters provide further texture and form as well as opportunities for seasonal displays.

EVENT PROCEEDS SUPPORT THESE WONDERFUL CHARITIES
Lifeline Aotearoa is a charity dedicated to reducing distress and saving lives by providing safe, accessible, effective, professional and innovative services. We have been helping New Zealanders in distress and crisis for almost 60 years. Our free helplines are answered by our highly trained team 24 hours per day, 365 days of the year. We help an average of 15-20 people each day at high risk of suicide. We receive over 10,000 calls and receive and send over 30,000 texts each month from people of all ages and ethnicities who are struggling with a wide range of issues. We receive no government funding for these helplines and it is only because of generous donations from incredible kiwis that we can be there to answer each call. Head to www.lifeline.org.nz to find out more
KidsCan is New Zealand’s leading charity dedicated to helping Kiwi kids affected by poverty. We believe that education is a child’s ticket out of poverty, giving them the opportunity for a better future. We partner with over 850 schools and 100 early childhood centres across Aotearoa to give the 1 in 5 Kiwi kids affected by poverty the essentials they need to learn.
The school programmes provide nutritious breakfast, snack and lunch foods to 40,000 hungry school kids every day plus new fleece-lined jackets and sturdy shoes. Our ECE programme provides pre-schoolers with a jacket, shoes and socks and freshly prepared meals daily. None of this would be possible without the support of generous Kiwis whose donations help ensure no Kiwi kid goes without. www.kidscan.org.nz
Oke provides Kiwi kids with the opportunity to learn life and social skills by introducing productive gardens into schools. Through our Growing A Future program, Oke delivers a garden to each school, enabling the kids, teachers and local community to get growing.
The garden is built through a community working bee (in just ONE day) and includes all that is required to make it sustainable; raised beds, greenhouse, composting solutions, kids tools, teacher tools, irrigation, fruit trees etc. Each Growing a Future project for a school is worth over $20,000. Oke works all year round to raise the funds so our ‘Growing a Future’ gardens don’t cost the school a cent! www.oke.org.nz
Garden to Table is a charitable trust that empowers tamariki across Aotearoa to grow, harvest, prepare and share fresh food. Their programme enables schools and kura throughout the motu to deliver, embed and sustain impactful food education. By taking learning out of the classroom, they help Kiwi kids develop essential life skills and build resilience. These positive impacts radiate far beyond the school gates - to whānau, the wider community, and the planet - ultimately enabling a more sustainable, equitable and climate-friendly social and economic future. Garden to Table’s dream is ‘for every child in Aotearoa to have the opportunity and resources to grow and share their own fresh kai as part of daily life’. www.gardentotable.org.nz
Rotary Newmarket is a volunteer group of community-minded individuals who participate in a number of activities to enhance the lives of others. Fundraising is an important part of all these activities. The Rotary Club of Newmarket Charitable Trust has been established to account for funds raised and the distribution of these funds. All funds raised through and received from the Auckland Garden DesignFest will be allocated to child-specific activities.
Designer: Rachael Farthing
Address: 16 Franklin Rd, Freemans Bay
A special project designed by Babylon Gardens for an architect (MAUD Design) and family, to complement the modern extension to a heritage villa. From a simple cobbled drive, the beautifully-laid creamy crazy-paving stone path leads to the rear garden, a pool, bespoke fence and reused brick. The 170 sqm garden also makes room for growing vegetables and a lawn.
Decisions around surfaces and hard landscaping for the whole site were based on adding warmth and avoiding severe edges between spaces.
Installation & Construction: Babylon Gardens
Pool: Hansen Pools & Academy Tiles
Designer: Richard Neville
Address: 94 Kiwi Rd, Pt Chevalier
A Richard Neville design, developed in collaboration with Studio Naomi Rushmer, is a project titled ‘Connection’ and explores the relationship between architecture, gardens and people. The garden is designed as an extension of the home and unites the disciplines of architecture and landscape architecture. The planting design operates at the intersection of native, perennial and tropical plant palettes. Evergreen foliage provides structure and texture year round, while perennials offer seasonal change and surprise. The garden offers togetherness, relaxation and environmental intimacy.
Construction: Luitjen Landscapes & Shearer Landscapes
Pool: Aqua Technics
Designer: Andy Hamilton
Address: 48 John St, Ponsonby
The brief for the rear garden was to create a family friendly usable outdoor space that needed to accommodate rather a lot of functional requirements in a relatively small space. A swimming pool, dining terrace, lawn, firebowl terrace and edible garden were aspects of the brief. A carefully proportioned and simple composition seemed to work best to achieve a spacious garden which could include the programmatic requirements of the client’s brief. Privacy planting coupled with seasonality, texture and layering informed the planting design which combines evergreen hedges with some deciduous trees and shrubs.
Installation & Maintenance: Second Nature
Designer: Jenny Pullar
Address: 23 Esmeralda Ave, Avondale
Designer, owner Jenny Pullar embraced as a sustainable design challenge to work with existing situation including 1960’s house with brown stained deck railing. In the interconnected garden rooms, colour is key - pink and orange flowers in entry courtyard. From the deck Cotinus arch over broad steps into main garden with purple flowers and foliage plus green and cream with mosaic stepping stones in a no mow fine fescue lawn. There is also an orchard area and a secret courtyard.

Designer: Barbara Garrett
Address: 92 Calgary St, Mt Eden
This quirky and personable garden, designed by Barbara Garrett, evolved over 10 years. The rocky undulating site and pre-existing concrete structures determined its form. From a jungle of vegetation, selected perimeter trees were kept to provide screening. The small formal front garden features a persimmon and simple mass planting of textural greens. The sloping back garden is a delightful surprise; a mixture of bananas, plum, citrus, persimmon, feijoa and guava, subtropicals in pots and mounded rosemary, bay and hydrangea.

Designer: Barbara Garrett
Address: 106 Grange Rd, Mt Eden
The restoration of this unique Mt Eden site by Barbara Garrett, is an ongoing project for the present owners. The gracious turn of the century villa was built high on the end of a Maungawhau lava flow, creating rocky challenges for building outdoor spaces and new gardens.
Design decisions were heavily influenced by the existing landforms and large native trees. Mitigating the towering appearance of the house and improving entrance levels to the garden and house were the main priorities.

Designer: Val Puxty
Address: 20 Atanga Ave, Mt Eden
This garden perched atop a hill, is brimming with personality. Designed by Val Puxty in collaboration with the ceramic sculptor owner, the garden is quixotic and bright.
A mix of natives and subtropicals, old trees and perennial borders, the site takes full advantage of the treed surrounding urban landscape and is a visual delight. The garden features formal and clipped, wild and woodland in unexpected combinations, big bold colours and lush cool greens sprinkled with the artist owner’s sculptural creations.

Designer: Xanthe White Design
Address: 38 Valley Rd, Mt Eden
A marriage between old and new, this garden weaves an original workers cottage with contemporary architecture through a bold use of natives in biomorphic forms. This garden is for those who want a city chic that enriches the landscape and native ecology as well as being robust for family life that includes children, chickens and a beloved dog. The paving around the old totara is all permeable to allow water flow through the root structure and the protection of old trees as well as planting of stands of beautiful rewarewa brings additional birdlife to the garden.

Address: 5 Bellevue Road, Mt Eden
An established formal garden lies hidden on the hillside below Maungawhau/Mt Eden, created by owner & director of Gardenia Design. The verdant sheltered garden complements the 1880 villa surrounded by majestic old trees, adding to the sense of grandeur on arrival. Striking King ferns, nikau, Blechnum ‘silver lady’ and Ligularia embellish the path leading to the front of the house where the pool sits perched with fabulous views out to the west, framed by clipped hedging and lush lawns.

Address: 219/23 Edwin St, Mt Eden
Great skill is clearly demonstrated at this abundant urban terrace, designed and maintained by owner Jo Hamilton and husband Mark. Trees provide an overhead layer and sense of enclosure and work to separate the spaces for food production, dining, relaxation and entertaining-holm oaks, bay, Cercis, Albizzia, Lagerstromia, and the rare African Schrebera alata. Plentiful attractive pots hold perennials and citrus while the vegetable garden provides year round food. Jo is also responsible for the charming courtyard planting outside the aparment.

Address: 2 Saint Vincent Ave, Remuera
This heritage house sits at the top of St Vincent Ave with grand views to the surrounding landscape. A subtropical garden leads to to the house which will be open for viewing, courtesy of the owners. The original house was built by merchant Thomas Newman in 1847. In 1862 it was replaced with a grander, Victorian gothic style house and ballroom.
On the lawn will be market stalls plus tea and coffee - a great place to eat your picnic lunch.
Designer: Geoffrey Marshall
Address: 109 Portland Road, Remuera
A series of lush and luxuriant garden rooms linked by stone paths was developed through close collaboration between garden designer Geoffrey Marshall and the owner, Melanie Hollingsworth. The garden surrounds an expanded 1950s modernist house with skilful use of existing features - a stand of giant bamboo, a stream, a woodland copse, stone walls, all of which anchor the new garden. Intense dialogue about colour and form has created a richly detailed result to ensure year round interest.

Address: 285 Victoria Ave, Remuera
Nestled down a quiet right-of-way is one of Remuera’s most “secret” gardens. The picturesque setting borrows landscape from both neighbouring St Kentigerns School grounds to the east, with its large old trees and sea views of Hobson Bay to the north. The garden was developed over time following the house’s construction in 1997. Alexander McClew designed the new centrepiece, a two-tiered pond and waterfall. Old moss-covered and gnarly stones were specially selected for a natural, weathered, age-old appearance.

The design of this garden was centred around the movement of a wheelchair which created circular and fluid forms adding a distinct beauty and pleasure unique to this space. Rather than treating accessibility as an attachment to space, treating it as a driver to explore space creates something dynamic, immersive and beautiful. The planting design shares a spirit of inclusiveness, richness for ecology, productivity and effervescence to create a space that is extravagant, verdant and could be created on the smallest of budgets” – Xanthe White
