Els’ garden is on a quarter acre, gently south-sloping block, and includes a variety of ornamental zones front and back including a substantial variety of native plants. Phyla nodiflora on the nature strip leads to Isopogons sheltering under a silver birch and a Chinese pistacio, near a mature Myoporum floribundum. Mauve Prostanthera, Olearia and Westringia contrast beautifully with the yellows and oranges of Micrantheum hexandrum, Pomaderris phylicifolia and multiple Banksias and Grevilleas. The stunning exotic Cercis canadensis shades white Olearia and Kunzea, and a delicate pink Ozothamnus nearby. In the back garden a small pond and creek make a lovely setting. A wisteria covered pergola creates a shady outdoor area for a cup of tea or coffee.
