Raised planters

Our current project is on a large section near the head of Lyttelton Harbour that has fantastic views of the surrounding hills. The client’s brief is to design and build a potager garden, a French term for a kitchen garden. This garden will provide a formal element on this otherwise semi-rural property.

Design topics

The previous house on this Mt Pleasant property was demolished because of earthquake damage. The clients were left with an almost blank site to build their new house and create a new garden. Only a few established trees on the perimeter of the property were left.

After a muddy start to this project we are now well under way. The warm, dry spring weather has certainly made the job easier!
