We inherited this garden from its previous owners in October 2022. It was a case of love at first sight. We are blessed that the design is wonderful and the flora well established.

SEASONS, 5 St Georges Road, Leura

This garden celebrates the climate of the Upper Blue Mountains with its four distinct seasons.  We were lucky 15 years ago to take custody of an established garden which had plenty of time, money and effort put into it over the previous decades.  We had our own views, of course, about what we wanted in our garden, and took the bones of the Knox garden to pare back and reshape.

 

EWANRIGG, 100 Gladstone Road, Leura

Ewanrigg is a garden that encourages visitors to amble and explore its intricate network of pathways and steps while admiring the foresight and talent of its creator and those who have nurtured it since.Over the decades many visitors to Ewanrigg have suggested the strength of the garden is the wisdom of having planted trees in the past that now act as a canopy to a series of lush garden rooms.  

TREE TOPS, 4 Mimosa Avenue, Wentworth Falls

Nestled in a well-established garden just under an acre and set in completely private surrounds, Tree Tops backs directly onto bushland which leads to the beautiful Wentworth Falls Lake. 

 

AVILA, 110 Craigend Street

Avila is a small garden approximately 14 years old.  The street verge is lined by Ginko biloba trees, which in spring burst forth in fresh bright foliage.  As you enter the garden a beautiful vista opens to the visitor.

 

 

HILL OF GRACE, 52 Sublime Point Road

The garden was created in the 1970s by Keith Knox, with “crazy paving” stone paths and walls being used to cut across a remarkably steep, east-facing site at the back of the property. The resulting vertical garden is simultaneously beautiful and challenging.
