La Maison Pacifique Garden

How well does our garden grow?

As long term subscribers know, the owners of La Maison Pacifique “The Peaceful House” have an ongoing commitment to preserving and enhancing the local environment in which we are located.  This takes many forms and probably most significantly, is able to be experienced by our guests through our bush tucker and herb gardens.  Of course, it is enhanced by our 31 solar panels, ceiling fans and many opening windows (to catch the sea breeze).

We have some recent photos (below) to share, but also, just so you know, our native stingless bees are obviously working hard!  Our fruit trees our flowering, our herb garden thriving and with some excellent work by our favourite local gardener, Dave, the soil is improving with the addition of paper, coffee grounds, mulch, grass clippings, compost and other organic materials – all designed with the minimum negative impact on the environment our goal.

A perfect spot to sit in the sunshine. Love our winters!

Special thanks to Dave who took these fabulous photos for us.  Our soil has improved out of sight with all his efforts and it is certainly showing up in the way the garden is blossoming.

We are about to add extra seating into the garden, in places specially chosen for quiet contemplation or a chance to watch the many touch rugby matches hosted by guests.  You just have to step through the blue door to experience the delights of the garden from the main house.

We recently looked ourselves up on Google Earth.  It gives a great birdseye view of La Maison Pacifique, the Bush Tucker Garden and also how close we are to the beach!  We have “snipped” it below for you…
