Te Kainga Marire


This 2000sq metre private New Zealand native garden has drawn comment for its uncanny but quite coincidental resemblance to the gold-medal-winning New Zealand Garden at the 2004 Chelsea Flower Show. Te Kainga Marire - Maori for the peaceful encampment - is a skilfully designed inner-city native garden that mimics New Zealand's natural environment. Built in a New Plymouth valley, Te Kainga Marire is now considered to be one of few private Gardens of International Significance by the prestigious RNZIH New Zealand Gardens Trust. This is a harmonious garden that weaves subtle textures and colours with quirky forms. Lush ferns, wetland plants, alpine treasures and native trees here make up a microcosm of the New Zealand landscape.
