Beginning a garden on the side of a hill with just a few mature holly, beech and oak trees, they have, with skill, hard work and devotion developed a garden of rare beauty. The magnificent use of hedges and innovative planting combined with modern sculpture has created something rarely seen in Tasmania, a garden where architectural space is used to striking effect.
Despite the physical and mental demands of running a highly successful restaurant, they keep the garden to a degree of manicured perfection that is truly amazing. Being a skilled hedge trimmer, Linda is one of a rare breed of women, trimming the hedges is her way of relaxing after a hectic days work. Graeme has created all the metal sculptures himself over the last ten years, which add a new dimension to an already inspired setting.
