Anna Plischke landscape plan

Anna Plischke designed gardens and landscapes for houses designed by her architect husband, Ernst Plischke, in Wellington. This garden was planned around an extension to a neo-Georgian house in the early 1950s. The sunroom opened directly onto a brick and paved courtyard with mosses planted between the slabs. The courtyard was enclosed on two sides by low walls planted with rock plants and spring bulbs. A series of wide steps led up to a rose terrace and sunken garden surrounded by native trees and succulents.
