The gardens at Upton Oaks have been developed over many years and been created  to  harmonise  with the style of the 1911 Victorian Villa.

Upon purchase of the property in 1987 the villa was in a dilapidated state and there was very little evidence left of any gardens.  However there was a wonderful old walnut tree and we could see the potential for the villa.  We spent endless hours doing the restoration and at the same time started to create a garden.

Today the garden consists of different garden areas,all contained within a formal framework of hedges and walls, which define and separate the garden rooms. A favourite feature is the large formal 17th century style knot garden which is divided into different colour sections by buxus. View the herbaceous borders and pond plus the productive garden which is accessed via a small olive grove, or along the rose walk,  to  large raised vegetable beds and espaliered fruit trees on  brick walls. The newest part of the garden contains blue and white perennial beds surrounding a French styled iron gazebo, the perfect spot for wedding photos.

Upton Oaks garden has graced the pages of numerous magazines plus  television screens and is visited by many national and international groups each year.  The garden has been awarded the rating of a Garden of National Significance by the New Zealand Garden Trust.
