The owners of Garden 1 began with a blank canvas and a 10 metre drop at the back of the block. They created a beautiful bird attracting, self-sustaining garden that blends with the landscape, climate and plants of the region.

The owners of Garden 2 outgrew their previous block and moved on to a larger project where they defined a vegetable patch, ornamental gardens, a rainforest and a fire pit. They subscribe to the theory of going with what works and abandoning what doesn’t – a great approach to a garden! The result is an eclectic mix providing peaceful surroundings and much joy,

This garden has been transformed from dense trees, scrub and weeds. Over the last 5 years it has emerged as a magnificent pattern of garden rooms and areas, with a tropical style garden forming as plants grow. It is a place of relaxation, peace and serenity – a haven away from a busy world and a place of solitude.
