Mt Eden Garden

The site was very narrow and angled, but the house design created not only a delightful home, but also excellent opportunities for garden making. The rear garden includes a small lawn and features a two large lava outcrops.  The front gardens comprise the approach to the house up a series of stepped decks, and under a pergola to be clad in Mandevilla and Thunbergia vines. The client was keen to make the best of Central Auckland's very warm, sheltered and humid climate by using sub-tropical planting character which harmonised well with the architecture and building materials.
