Talamhmaith means ‘good earth’. The garden combines Vivienne and Ian’s love of New Zealand natives, with the meandering creek, expansive views to the Richmond Ranges, and a hobby vineyard. The emphasis is on simplicity and low maintenance by utilising multiple plantings of native grasses, flaxes and lilies. Oaks, an olive grove and a hedged vegetable garden all add interest and diversity. There are pathways and stream crossings that will lead you on a tour through this restful garden.
