Garden: 15 Claude Rd, Epsom
This garden is a collaboration between designer Nigel Cameron and the owner, who wanted a Southern USA, formal style, low maintenance, kid-friendly, subtropical garden. Being a timber merchant (South Pacific Timber) he was keen to use timber boardwalks as paths and Nigel also felt that these would work well. Vitex was used as it is the most sustainably sourced hardwood available and a boardwalk design also uses up a lot of short lengths that might otherwise be wasted. Ramps have been used instead of steps so that the kids can ride their bikes on them. As requested, subtropical plants known to do well in Auckland were selected, with plenty of colour close to the house.
Nigel Cameron, principal designer of Cameron LandscapeDesign Ltd, has 25 years’ experience and has led his team to win five Ellerslie Flower Show awards (four Gold and one Silver) since 1998. Nigel appears frequently in magazine articles and quality publications such as NZ Gardener, Trends and Urbis and has been on numerous television shows such as My House My Castle, Maggie’s Garden Show, Holmes and TV ONE News.
His work has also been published in 2 of Steven Wooster's books (UK garden photographer). Recently his work was featured in Contemporary Gardens of New Zealand by Carol Bucknell and Sally Tagg, testament not only to the enduring nature of his talent, but also to the quality of execution of his designs by his team of expert staff and dependable contractors. Nigel has also been a regular and enthusiastic tutor of Landscape Construction at UNITEC in Auckland.Back to Designers index page
