Garden Group

A landscape plan has been designed for the Halfway House heritage garden by award winning designer Charles Gordon. The plan includes spacious lawns, an orchard, paths, seating, and flower and vegetable beds.

A group of residents from the wider Johnsonville area with a passion for historic and heritage gardens have met and are keen to see the plan grow from the design stage into reality.

Before that happens, the Wellington City Council will undertake an archaeological surface scrape to identify any original garden landscape that could be incorporated into the design.
