A new garden to list is SAJJ Garden 19 The Mews, Shamrock Park, Howick, Auckland.

Ten years in the making, SAJJ Garden wraps around a 90's suburban house showcasing a sizeable assortment of bromeliads of all shapes, sizes and rarities tucked amongst a variety of mature palm trees and cyclads. Succulents, staghorn ferns, driftwood and airplants are also integrated into the garden. A 20 tonne driftwood is a focal piece at one side of the entrance. Bougainvillea and flowers around the property provide pops of colour among the sea of green and red.

Development of the garden commenced in 2007 with a section of lawn and concrete edgings making way for a pool complex and extensive buxus hedging. Changes were made over time to the original plantings, pavings, and decks to create SAJJ Garden that now exists.

Twice, Pas has been presented with the best garden award at previously owned properties located in the Manukau City (before it came to be part of Auckland City).
