This garden encompasses a three-quarter acre site, with beds either side of a sweeping lawn leading down to fruit trees, a vegetable garden and pool area. The beds are mostly natives including correas, eremophilas, grevilleas, banksias and prosthantheras, with some ornamental pears, a ginkgo and a Japanese pagoda tree. At the bottom, a pond is surrounded by grasses and citrus trees. The pool, shaded by a linden tree, divides the garden, leading to an area with roses and other flowering plants. From the house’s verandah you overlook pastures with city views in the distance.
