Description

 

To visit this densely planted Hills garden on a summer’s day is to walk into an oasis of cool green and an abundance of flowers. Tall trees planted 42 years ago give shade to beds where wind flowers mingle with hydrangeas, tree ferns, fuchsias, gardenias and bromeliads.

The property slopes downwards and an outdoor dining area behind the house has a lovely leafy back drop of tree canopies and views over the garden below. Winding paths weave through the foliage and among the big old tree trunks to where a spring-fed creek is crossed by several small bridges. Here ferns, azaleas, camellias, rhododendrons, and an assortment of lush shade loving plants flourish in the cool protected microclimate and dappled light that filters through the lofty trees. Hydrangeas thrive and in summer put on a colourful display.

Fruit trees are planted wherever there is a sunny spot and there is small vegetable garden.

The swimming pool is surrounded by palms which shade the sparkling water and there is a tennis half-court.

A cool, tranquil hills garden filled with lush foliage and flowers – very inviting on a hot day!

 

Size: 0.75 acres; 0.3ha.

Please note: there are a swimming pool and creek on the property. It is not suitable for wheelchairs. 

The nominated charity for this garden is: The Hut
