Past visitors have said they enjoyed watching the wild birds coming to feed on the verandah and the butterflies on the native flowering plants; the unusual trees;  the lack of tidy formality; the dramatic backdrop of steep rocky, wild, forested hillside, and – if running – Beyonderup Falls and the small pools and gurgling mini-rapids below them.

This garden is essentially a domestic garden on 1000 square metres of land. The whole of the area has been purposed. The garden is on a hilly aspect which has been utilised, not altered, by hard and soft landscaping, creating habitat for bird life with extensive native gardens that are situated at the front of the block and follow the hill to the rear of the house.

This garden is a new garden being established for less than 5 years, the whole ethos of the occupants is to use the land wisely, accommodate as many birds as possible, feed the house hold and value add where possible.  It is not a formal garden. The owners have tried to create a garden in keeping with the design of the house and fit snugly into the landscape
