Dave and Ginny Clark own and operate Decor Gardenworld.
Fifty six years ago, Décor Gardenworld in Bethlehem was little more than a flat paddock. It was a blank canvas awaiting the germinating vision of two friends, Laurie Clark and Bob Banyard who met while working for Auckland City Council’s Parks and Reserves.
Laurie had decorated gardens for many dignitaries including the Queen, several Lord Mayors of London and the King of Thailand. Both men had very good jobs but decided to chuck them in and start a new adventure centred around their love of plants.
It was 1967, and at that time garden centres had barely made a mark on New Zealand’s landscape. They were a ‘relatively new idea’, says Laurie Clark.
“Stan Palmer had just opened a garden centre at Mount Eden and I said to Bob, why don’t we open one?” Tauranga seemed a good place and Bob had some land on Moffat Road which is still the original site for Décor. So on May 7, 1967, Laurie and Bob and their respective wives Lois and Jean, opened Décor Garden Centre. Later it was to become Décor Greenworld and today it is Décor Gardenworld.
Now operated by Laurie & Lois' son Dave and his wife Ginny, Decor is STILL the best garden centre in the Bay. Laurie & Lois and Bob & Jean's expert knowledge, advice, care, and enthusiasm is a strong legacy that will serve the Bay for many years to come.
Décor Gardenworld belongs to a group of independent Garden Centres from throughout New Zealand.
