Teviot Downs is committed to providing a quality rural residential estate while embracing the natural environment and we encourage our residents to do the same.

Much of the established native tree cover has been retained to provide a woodland character and to maintain ecosystems and habitats for the natural flora and fauna. We have planted thousands of trees, species of which grow naturally in the area and rehabilitate creeks and open space areas which are eroded or damaged. Our building covenants prevent the removal of trees outside of the building footprints on individual allotments and require trees to be replaced in the event of unnecessary removal.

The road framework and stages of development are designed around significant trees, open space wildlife corridors and waterways to provide an uninterrupted path for the migration of native species including kangaroos and frogs.

Award winning bebo arches have been incorporated into the engineering design of estate bridges to enable aquatic species the ability to travel upstream and down. This is important for the reproductive process of many aquatic mammals, reptiles and fish.

All allotments come with developer provided dog proof fencing on adjoining lot boundaries in order to keep your domestic pets from getting too close to the native fauna. Teviot Downs encourages all animals to live in harmony with each other on the estate.

Every house at Teviot Downs is required to have a minimum rain water storage of 31,500lt. Concrete in-ground tanks harvest rain water from your roof and the water is then plumbed to your laundry and bathrooms. Teviot Downs has reticulated town water which is plumbed to your kitchen. The above measures are a local authority requirement.

Every house at Teviot Downs is also required to have a Household Sewerage Treatment Plant. The water that is produced is very clean and depending on the kind of system you choose, can be used for a variety of purposes. The transpiration area can be transformed into a lovely landscaped garden bed. A list of suitable species is supplied to residents.
