The Garden

This 4 acre country garden is set among 5 ha of original 140 year old homestead trees.

The sheltered, peaceful garden with many quality and varied plantings is bordered with extensive buxus hedging.

Large manicured lawns enhance the setting and make it an ideal picnic spot.

The Gardener

Marg was "born to garden", helping in the family garden from a very young age. She married a farmer and has developed an enthusiastic passion for growing and enjoying trees and their colour. Bob is a 3rd generation farmer whose property has been in the family for 80 years. Enjoys doing the bigger jobs associated with the garden and takes pride in keeping the legacy of the old trees.
