Set in an enclave of quality houses in Cockle Bay, the residents take great pride in their driveways and landscaping. One lady started a trend of using Hawkes Bay 10mm with black oxide for her driveway and paths and a few neighbours wanted to copy the look with variations on the theme to define their individual properties. The result, thanks to the imagination and flair of the landscaper has produced clean lines with differing elements such as wood, kerbing, river stones and grasses. A lot of the concrete paths were laid insitu and the landscaping adds to the sense of permanence in this delightful setting.
