The Ridges is an old country garden set on a terrace above the Rangitikei River. The garden is 2.5 hectares with another 3 hectares of woodland alongside State Highway 1 near Marton, North Island, New Zealand.
The Garden was established in 1924 by May and Alan Marshall and is now cared for by their granddaughter Sally Marshall, with help from her family. The garden is well known for its driveway lined with rhododendrons underplanted with Cyclamen hederifolium. A stand of kahikatea to the southeast and mixed native trees on the ridge above to the west form a backdrop to views in the garden, which looks out to surrounding countryside and the Ruahine Ranges.
A love of plants, birdlife, colour and design are evident in this garden.
