Rotorua district -south

j1-josie-jamesThe epitome of a country garden.
Garden rooms and lawns from the house     to the property’s perimeter with
permanent structural plants and delicate
examples of nature’s beauty. A wonderful
instance of blending home, animals and
the landscape together.

 

 

j2-gg_travisThis is a young garden surrounding a
colourful home on the top of a small hill,
offering spectacular valley views. The
borders are largely perennials, yellow and
blue being the predominant colours which
echo the colours of the house.

 

 

 

 

j3-tyburnmonasteryStunning lake views and tranquil gardens
make this an ideal retreat for the residents. The steep climb to the cross at the top of the hill has seats along the way and a grotto set into the hillside. A formal rose garden has been designed for spiritual contemplation.

 

 

j4-mh_collins-14nov11-11_34_33Allow plenty of time to explore this private
arboretum developed with passion over
30 acres beside Lake Ohakuri. The variety
of trees is extensive and includes conifers,
deciduous trees, rhododendrons and
native wetlands. The owners love to share
their vision and collect ideas from visitors.
