After entering the main gate you move down the serpentine red brick path to a bridge which is intertwined with white scented wisteria.
The large boulders in the cascades were surface granite from Luxulyan, a nearby village. The water is recycled by a large pump situated under the bridge to feed the cascades and to oxygenate the water. In early spring you will encounter azaras which have the sweet scent of vanilla, berberis, abelias, michelias, syringas and many more trees and shrubs. This is where a lovely horse statue rests amid two tetrapanax which, in time, will tower over him.
Watch for the lovely pseudowintera along the path before entering the next garden.
