What native regeneration and wetland planting looks like eight years on.

So this is the goal: this is what we’re aiming for when we say native regeneration and wetland development. As a means to reduce our collective environmental impact, Auckland’s new residential developments are turning their stormwater ponds into wetland areas.

Planted with grasses and other natives from Signature Plants, here are some examples of successful wetland regeneration projects at North Shore’s Millwater and Long Bay developments.

These areas provide a home to wildlife, and offer a recreational area to the public. The plants filter stormwater runoff before it makes its way into our waterways and eventually, into the sea.

Signature Plants are proud to be part of these efforts to lessen our environmental impact and improve our ecosystems for future generations.

As you can see in the examples below, after eight years the areas look so well established it’s as if they’ve always been there. That’s a success story in our books and a real win for Auckland’s environment.

In addition to wetland regeneration, our plants can be found lining the streets at Long Bay, providing a natural, green and beautiful residential suburb.
