A green haven
From the road frontage to the seclusion your backyard, Selo's extensive landscaping will reside harmoniously within its environment and the wider neighbourhood.
Built around a central park, Selo's layout has been designed to provide a high level of amenities for residents, with streets, lanes and parking, beautified by street gardens and pocket parks.
The pick of the crop
Landscape Architect Helen Mellsop has taken her cue for the planting palette from the historic use of the site for horticulture and orchards and from the native bush of the foothills of the nearby Waitakere Ranges.
Blossoming fruit trees add colour and fresh fruit for residents to pick, and roadside rain gardens will be planted with native species endemic to the ecosystem of the surrounding Oratia Stream Valley.
The exteriors of these homes will make a striking first impression, framed by specimen trees and natives. Fully-fenced yards will feature a patio for al fresco entertaining surrounded by lawn and low-maintenance planting, as well as trees to add to your privacy.
The landscaping of the streets and lanes within Selo will encourage a low-speed environment that is safe and welcoming for pedestrians and cyclists.
Strategically-placed gardens, including environmentally-friendly rain gardens to naturally treat stormwater, high-quality street furniture and varied pavement materials combine to create a practical, yet visually pleasing, streetscape.
