Waikuku Woodland Garden

This grove of trees - Kowhai trees (Sophora microphylla) - is underplanted with the native Gossamer Grass (Anamanthele lessoniana) which contrasts nicely with the strong, upright forms and creates a soft division between the driveway and the house Rebecca Wilson

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Wilson underplanted the grove of kowhai trees with native gossamer grass, which she says "contrasts with the strong, upright forms and creates a soft division between the driveway and the house."She describes her parents' house as "pretty ordinary" — it's an L-shape concrete block with a low-pitched roof and aluminum windows. Her mother immediately painted it black and planted ivy around the base. "Now it is completely covered and is a greenhouse requiring diligent shaving twice a year. It actually looks very acceptable now, as it kind of disappears into the garden," she says.
