Hooton Reserve Raingarden

1 2 3 4 5

Works Overview

Wetland Solutions were contracted to Auckland Council to undertake the construction and planting of a rain garden. This project also involved planting and weed management within other areas of Hooton Reserve. 
Works included:
  • On-going Weed Management
  • Plant Supply (8,400)
  • Rain Garden, Riparian Margin, Native In-filling and Amenity Planting
  • On-going Plant Maintenance


The creation of a rain garden in the Hooton Reserve allows water run-off from the nearby roads and pavements to flow into the garden to reduce the risk of flooding and to filter the water before it enters the adjacent stream.
The desired outcome is to create an effective rain garden, which is also visually pleasing. Planting within the reserve will contribute to and enhance the existing native vegetation.
