“A Rural Garden on the Edge of Town combining mass plantings of natives among well-established European exotics”

On the edge of town a predominately native garden has been established over the past six years. The aim has been to create a welcoming family garden and year round habitat for birds, insects and wildlife. 

Hardy water-wise plantings have been incorporated with original large deciduous and native trees.  Extensive use of gabion walls and terracing provides shape, interest and quiet sitting areas.

A productive raised bed organic vegetable garden is bordered by espaliered olive trees.

Rural views from the northerly aspect of the garden are enhanced by an ornamental dam, creating a tranquil setting and entertaining bird watching.
