SOME NOTES FROM THE OWNER ON THE GARDENS :
The garden was designed to enhance the solar passive house features by planting deciduous trees on the north side. This provides shade in the summer and allows the winter sun through. On this side of the house the expanse of lawn is edged by a low growing hedge of dwarf orange jessamine. The garden beds filled with a variety of native and exotic small shrubs and perennials together with a various varieties of bulbs provide flowers throughout the year.
The front garden uses the evergreen fruit trees for privacy and the deciduous trees to shade the house in summer. Garden beds full of flowering shrubs, perennials and bulbs provide seasonal change and flowers year round.
The design of the garden allows for easy maintenance by following the flowering that occurs throughout the year. The hedge is slow growing, reducing the pruning required. Fruiting times are spread throughout the year and varieties selected for size and easy pruning.
Both the front and rear lawns are surrounded by a mowing strip allowing mowing to the edge of the lawn and reducing the amount of edging required.
The gardens and lawn areas are fully irrigated by eight separate stations. This provides the flexibility to match the amount of water required to each type of planting. The controller is easy to operate and allows for seasonal adjustments.
