Private Gardens


The Garden

Angrason gardens have plantings of native trees and shrubs which shelter the garden from prevailing winds.  The  pathways and easy steps lead the visitor from one level to another, along  the stream and over bridges to ponds and waterfalls and through dense plantings of palms, bromeliads, maples, vireya rhododendrons, agaves, cycads and ferns. Large aviaries of canaries and piped music complement the garden's character. View Map

The Gardener
