Plants thrive in the rich soil. Birds and wildlife flock to the cascading waterfalls, ponds and open areas. As a work in progress, it is an inspiring 'must see' for nature and gardening enthusiasts. As the garden changes colour with seasons, and as work progresses, the space and the views are continually evolving and excelling themselves.
