Front garden

A variety of native small trees, shrubs and groundcovers have been selected to screen the occupants of the house from passers-by and to provide flowering interest throughout the year, including winter. These varieties are planted densely so that visitors must use the granitic sand path to access the house, thereby reducing further compaction of garden beds. The plants in the so-called ‘Perfumed Pocket’ produce hard, woody fruit that will not damage the driveway or cars parked there. Existing Acacia spp. will be retained on-site during the garden replanting to ensure some screening of the master bedroom is provided during this transition. These two shrubs can be removed later if necessary.  And a secret fern garden has been included in front of the master bedroom for its occupants to enjoy!
