The core focus at Riverside for the last 25 years has been growing hardy native plants for re-vegetation, riparian and rural planting requirements.

All of our environmental plant lines are produced from eco-sourced seeds or cuttings and put through our quality nursery production system to develop into hardy plants ready to fill out the landscape. We typically supply these plants in 0.5L or 2.5L sizes depending on the plant.

Riverside has worked with councils, landowners and farmers all over Canterbury and further afield to consult on and implement; native shelter lines for under centre pivots, re-vegetation on barren land, riparian planting along waterways and wetlands, erosion control planting and perimeter shelter and privacy planting.

Years of experience mean we are well positioned to offer professional and complete solutions from initial design through to long term maintenance on your planting project. Contact us today for a free onsite consultation around the Canterbury area to discuss your planting plans.

Riparian Planting

Riverside has the expertise to provide you with advice and professional design for all your riparian and wetland planting requirements. We work from anything from simple streamside planting to complete wetland filtration systems for extracting pollutants from runoff flow before entering into a waterway.

Riverside have planted hundreds of thousands of plants for dairy and other farmers around the South Island, we offer solutions from planning through to maintenance on, dairy shed planting, native and exotic shelter planting, Leyland hedge planting, disposal field planting and amenity planting and landscaping.

Re-vegetation planting

From beech forests to large scale native revegetation projects Riverside has the capacity to prepare and plant out large areas of land. We see native forests and habitats as a vital asset for our country and can implement almost any revegetation project whether it’s in hill country, wetland or somewhere in between.
