Armadale Garden

Maintenance & Management

This garden has a unique ‘Arts and Crafts’ movement feel. Displaying a diverse tapestry of plants like Abutilon ‘Red Emperor’ revealing textural contrast through foliage and bold interest with flower color. To the property’s rear is a Golden Ash Fraxinus excelsor ‘Aurea’ in complete contrast with 2 Peppercorn Schinus molle trees, creating a protective canopy under which a flourishing microclimate exists.

Further interest is achieved through a 20-year-old Crimson glory vine, ‘Vitis coignetiae,’ which serves as an elegant and ever-changing canopy covering a large timber pergola adjacent to the home, which, in the summer months, is the perfect alfresco area.

Obvious in this garden is a focus on plant placement to achieve a real sense of depth and scale of the garden, which sits on a North – South block of over 900 sqm.

The planting within this garden evolved as it was maintained, with a basic premise in mind to acknowledge the Edwardian architecture carefully linking older parts of the garden with new, including plants such as Chrysocephalum apiculatum and Anigozanthos hybrid sp. in the scheme. It features plant diversity and opportunities for birds and butterflies to be part of this important garden space. Read Testimonial
