Tigminou (‘My home’ in South Moroccan Tachelhit Berber language) is a heritage house (1927 Federal Capital Commission home style no. 10) and garden inspired by countries the owner’s family call home: Morocco, France and Australia. Located in a heritage precinct in Barton, the streetscape features majestic trees. There is magnificent English oak at the rear of a ‘rescue garden’ featuring many familiar garden favourites – mostly unwanted and unloved plants migrated from neighbours and friends’ plots, saved from a certain death. Tigminou is an untamed work in progress.

Tigminou garden notes are available.
