About Kinalea Garden
Kinalea Garden has three lawns with a collection of rare trees and shrubs including a woodland garden. In the front garden there is a rockery of ferns, heathers and grasses. In the centre of the rear lawn there is a curved scree Alpine Rockery. This echoes the shape of the highlight of the garden which is the colourful perennial border with a cottage garden feel. The nearby sunken zen patio offers a collection of tropical plants & trees
