guide to New Zealand gardens of national and regional significance. In all, 64
gardens are listed 44 in the North Island and 20 in the South Island.
gardens featured have been visited by a team of NZ Gardens Trust assessors, working
to a rigorous set of standards. Factors considered include hard landscaping and
design, plant material and its use and association, maintenance, safety and ornamentation.
The assessors also look for creativity and attention to detail, and whether the
garden has that extra star quality. Judging gardens, like judging any art form,
is a difficult task.
There is a description and a single colour photo of
each garden that has been selected, along with opening times, whether there is
an admission fee and contact details. A very useful little book to keep in the
car, as there are some gardens included that you will not have heard of.
