Ranked as one of New Zealand's best formal gardens Ohinetahi will not disappoint. As with some of the most famous formal gardens Ohinetahi uses 'rooms' to great effect, quite distinct areas opening off the well defined axes that run through the garden. As at Hidcote in England, the use of hedges provides shelter from quite strong and persistent winds and makes it possible to grow plants that, otherwise, would struggle. This is a garden where years of work have created a garden that looks as if it was always there, and as if everything grows with ease.
