Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival

Garden & Art Trail

Tranquil Sanctuary

This garden showcases how a small suburban site has been transformed over five years, using structured planting and water features. Where once was a weedy lawn, can now be found a reflection pond, masses of Japanese box hedging, and gardenia, maples and lime chip walkways. It’s a garden that has recently evolved to include an ambient, Italian-styled wine drinking area…Villa de Vino.
