Backed up against East Lane in the village of Albion, the upper garden and house sit at eye level with the iconic Albion Bridge, and the lower garden slopes steeply down towards the river with a sweeping curve of cypress hedge that offers both a windbreak and some privacy. The garden has a foundation of mostly drought tolerant perennials including a variety of Leucadendrons, grasses (including Cordyline ‘Jurred’ or Festival Grass), Echium, Protea, Rosemary and Buddleja, and it is bordered with Euphorbia, Black Mondo Grass, and flowering succulents like Sempervivum, black Aeonium, and a spectacular Agave cactus.
Beds also contain seasonal flowering Alstroemeria, Hydrangea, Matilija Poppies, Iris, Calla Lily, Japanese Anemone, Hellebore and more. This is a fairly low maintenance garden, but as relative newcomers to the neighborhood, we feel very fortunate to have re-connected with the landscape designer/gardener who planted the garden and continues to help look after it!
