The second open garden on my self-directed walking tour of the Auckland Garden Design Festival. The owner explained that this garden is still a work in progress but they’re thrilled with the direction it’s taking. Much time had been spent moving excess soil from the site while still retaining the mature trees and palms already in place.
The circular theme that runs through their home is brought to the garden by a curved wooden deck and a large circular planter. While the idea that an outdoor room can be an extension of the home is echoed by a large artwork of blue flowers by Desna Whaanga-Schollumprovides.
I can’t wait to see how the garden progresses when they hold the festival again next year.
