Reece Rogers may be in his 100th year but he still maintains his landscaped garden in Waiuku which covers more than an acre.
He is particularly proud of the healthy citrus trees which take pride of place at the side of the house, and was very disappointed a few days ago to find his favourite mandarin tree almost completely stripped of fruit.
“I was away for the day and when I came home there was a trail of peel on the road in front of my property,” he says. “The mandarin tree had been almost completely stripped. It’s quite annoying, but I suppose boys will be boys.” Mr Rogers bought the Colombo Road property 11 years ago when it was an overgrown horse paddock.
Now colourful gardens and native trees are flourishing.
He admits he needs a bit of help from time to time, but still does most of the work himself and mows the expansive lawns. “I do have a ride on mower though.”
