This is a delightful one-acre garden mounded into several beds at the front to catch water – with plantings of crepe myrtles, a variety of pears, ornamental pomegranates, fruit trees and a stunning forest pansy under a canopy of box and stringy bark.
All of these beautiful trees are underplanted with salvias, euphorbias, spreading cyclamens and hellebores
The house pergola is covered in a mixture of grape and three types of parthenocissus with a Magnolia denudata as a feature tree. The back of the house is dedicated to produce and a tiered garden for vegetables and trees, including crab apple, two lilacs and a fish pond.
The driveway entrance from the road is lined with crepe myrtles, native grasses and westringias.
