Landscaping is well underway at the Dukes Road Crematorium and the kowhai trees will soon be planted.
Dukes Road Crematorium is located on a 1 hectare site in North Taieri. It has easy access over Three Mile Hill and through Gordon Road, Mosgiel.
The landscaping plan will provide privacy and seclusion for the premises. Neighbours will be unaware of the operation and visitors will enjoy the peaceful and tranquil surroundings.
The park-like setting has been beautifully designed and will provide grassed areas, tree-clad bunds, a terrace, and parking.
There is no provision for a large Chapel on-site but some families may follow the hearse to Kowhai. Kowhai will be reflected in the planting of native Kowhai among the 45 trees, the new Kohwai logo, and some beautiful Kowhai artwork.
Nichols Landscaping have been professionally completing the work, and the earthworks have been formed, the grass sprayed, and the soil turned in readiness for Spring and the laying of the new lawn. This will all coincide with the Crematorium opening in October.
