“Kay and Rudi are passionate about their North Canterbury country garden. They have worked together to turn half of their 2 ha property into a flourishing English-style garden, that has something for the whole family to enjoy.” NZ House & Garden, 2009 Long vistas with cross axis are recurring features of this Ben McMaster designed, formal garden. The garden includes massed herbaceous borders sheltered by high hornbeam hedges, a 16 meter-long water-lily pond, six box hedged rose beds and a potager garden. A meandering natural creek flows into a large, informal pond and a boardwalk leads through a New Zealand native area, providing several secluded relaxation spots. The surrounding farm landscape is inhabited by a menagerie of animals.
