25 Eedle  Terrace

Overlooking the Blackwood River ,this relaxed 3 year old ‘developing’ garden is Mediterranean in mood and plant choice, surrounded by deciduous trees.

Plants were chosen for their hardiness and the need to adapt to the sloping site and to complement the natural rock outcrops. The garden surrounds the house and includes a raised-bed kitchen garden and dwarf fruit tree orchard.
