— Berhampore, Wellington
Set on a sheltered site in Berhampore this garden weaves together natives, flowers and edibles to create a family friendly garden with beautiful moments throughout the year.
The design of this garden was both iterative and collaborative with the client being highly engaged in the process right from choosing rocks at the quarry together, to planting and tending the garden herself.
The mood of the front is bright and colourful with surprises such as strawberries edging the pathways. Contrasting this at the back the planting forms lush garden rooms perfect for family living.
