2022 Garden 12 - Mt Eden
A marriage between old and new, this garden weaves an original workers' cottage with contemporary architecture through bold use of natives in biomorphic forms.
This garden is for those who want a city chic that enriches the landscape and native ecology as well as being robust for family life that includes children, chickens and a beloved dog.
The paving around the old Totara is all permeable to allow water flow through the root structure and the protection of old trees as well as planting of stands of beautiful Rewarewa bring additional birdlife to the garden.
