Brackenridge 2011

Leptocarpus similis in the stony river

Have just taken some photos of the original landscaping we did at Brackenridge back in 2008. This is a famous country venue at Martinborough, used for weddings, conferences etc. Check out the page on The Spa @ Brackenridge from the list on the right, if you want to see more about our role in the development. The planting is in extremely dry and windy conditions, so has done really well in only 3 years.

  1. Wonderful contrasts of textures and shapes - from the globular hebses to the grassy mounds. And aren't hebes the most fabulous of plants? Tough, always look fresh, and great for clipping.
