Mangawhai Garden

This garden is a true plant lovers garden.  With several different microclimates creating diverse environments for plants, the garden becomes a horticultural journey.  Built on a high sand dune exposed to winds from every direction, the first objective was to create shelter, both for the owners living on the hill, and for the plants that had to grow there.  From the lower slopes where we could create a parklike environment with deciduous trees and beautiful lawns , to Southern windswept slopes where only hardy natives could grow and then to the fiercely dry Northern slopes where we planted succulents and South African plants, we have created a botanical collection.  It provides wonderful seasonal colour and habitat for birds and humans out of a previously inhospitable environment.
