Landscaping starts

Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed.

Here comes the really exciting part – The Garden. 

It’s fair to say that like most people I don’t know much about gardens apart from the fact that I have an insatiable desire to loose myself in one.

Last night I spent hours looking up the 40 odd plants, shrubs and trees that will be planted. Our landscaper has made some recommendations for changes to the original plant list and i would have been useless unless I had a real vision and understood what the plants actually looked like.

My first goal is to make sure it is as true to Myles Baldwin’s initial drawings. However I had to keep in mind when Myles came on site the place was a jungle and land clearance hadn’t taken place. He did pretty well considering.

I know this – this Garden is going to be epic!

Stay tuned to see the plants we have chosen for the perfect Leura garden!
