Ten years in the making, SAJJ Garden wraps around a 90's suburban house showcasing a sizeable assortment of bromeliads of all shapes, sizes and rarities tucked amongst a variety of mature palm trees and cycads. Succulents, staghorn ferns, driftwood and air plants are also integrated into the garden. 20-tonne driftwood is a focal piece at one side of the entrance. Bougainvillea and flowers around the property provide pops of colour among the sea of green and red.
Development of the garden commenced in 2007 with a section of lawn and concrete edgings making way for a pool complex and extensive Buxus hedging. Changes were made over time to the original plantings, pavings, and decks to create SAJJ Garden that now exists.
This garden is featured in the May 2018 issue of the NZ House and Garden Magazine. Article on this garden can be found at this website:
