Ohau Road Reserve Redevelopment

Xyst was engaged by the Mackenzie District Council to revitalise the Ohau Road Reserve in Twizel.

The project began with the creation of a concept plan for the reserve. Xyst’s team then utilised these plans to engage with the Twizel Community and gather their input, this work was facilitated through partnerships with the Council’s Communications Team and Community Board workshops.

Incorporating community feedback, a detailed landscape plan for the reserve was developed, finalised, and used to outline the project scope. Xyst then managed the procurement and supply of plants, and a local contractor to handle the landscaping and ongoing maintenance of the reserve. Completed in 2023, this neighbourhood reserve now offers shade and amenities to the local community.

Project Benefit

Xyst developed a detailed planting plan of over 200 specimen trees and smaller native plants for the reserve and associated streets and also procured the plants and a planting contractor in the winter of 2023.
