Works Overview

This project  required  the  establishment of  native plants, on the excavations  created  as the result of the Marsden Cove marina development.  This included two constructed wetlands and a large watercourse that required a mass revegetation and wetland planting.  The correct plant selection and methodology used has been an essential element to the successful outcome of this project. 

Works included:

  • Review Planting Plant and provide methodology for plant establishment
  • Plant Supply (32,830)
  • Planting
  • Weed Control


Marsden Cove is a new coastal marine development on the shores of the Whangarei Harbour.  The development consists of 350 canal frontage lots, a 230-berth marina and 350 residential lots.

As a result of the development the existing watercourse was diverted through a series of constructed wetlands, a man-made water course and then out to sea.


To meet Resource Consent requirements of the Whangarei District Council.

Canopy closure of the new plantings needed to be achieved within a 3 year time frame.
