Adel Sen is a 2 hectare property designed by owner, Tony Williams, to include the best of two styles – native and exotic. While it is still a little early in the year to have much colour, the bones of the garden and the skeletons of the trees have their own beauty with the early spring buds, and flowers on the Prunus.
The garden was planned over 20 years ago, and the design remained unchanged while the garden was developed. Tony has opened his garden five times to share the journey building his dream garden, with the last time in 2012. It is coming to fruition with mature trees, and interesting plants and features filling the space.
A Ring Road well within the property boundary divides the original native bush from the Ornamental gardens, and provides a backdrop for it in all directions. Around the house the garden is designed in a Northern European style, including a water feature, large mature Azaleas, Camellias and Roses. In early spring the main colour will be in the Flowering Plums, Azaleas and Rhapheolepsis.
There is extensive infrastructure, including a fernery building, retaining walls, and an ornamental grape arbour.
