    From the first peek over the picket fence, this enchanting garden on Sydney's North Shore entices with its rich tapestry of colourful flowers, lush plantings and tumbling foliage.

    When the owners acquired this double block, with its rambling grounds and 1916 cottage the garden was sadly overgrown. A magnificent coachwood tree became the starting point for new plans when the couple employed Jonathan Garner of Puddleton Gardens to design and create a garden sensitive to its origins.
