Raumati Garden

This garden was featured in HOME NZ magazine, the Penguin book on Contemporary Gardens of New Zealand and won an award for outstanding design with the New Zealand Institute of Landscape Architects. Set one property back from the beach, the garden has been divided into a series of small courtyards, designed to allow differing activities and positions for sculpture. The courtyards are separated by free standing walls and lines of corokia hedging which will provide shelter for more delicate planting between from the harsh coastal conditions. Insitu acid-washed concrete and gravel paving surfaces are alternated to provide each courtyard with a different feel. The courtyards are linked by timber “bridges” cutting through the lines of corokia hedging.
