Meet Lilly Pinto who lives in an old tiled house at Karangalapady, here, amidst high rising buildings. Her husband, Captain Aloysius Pinto is a pilot trainer.

I have gone to visit my ancestral home nearby the home of Tekkunje Gopalakrishna Bhat at Karangalapady, here, when I met Lilly, the new owner of this home, who has changed the landscape of the house with lush greenery in 10 years.


Her garden is a delight to those who love gardening that is therapeutic and soothing the nerves. She has innovatively organized the pots in all available spaces that are artistic also.



Hundreds of varieties of flowers adore from the entrance gate and all over the house. She is generous to give branches of plants that she had planted in small plastic bags for replanting. She has organized an exhibition-cum-sale of plants on October 7 from 8.30am to 1.00pm. She shared her gardening tips with the visitors.

Absolutely gorgeous build and landscaping in the middle of a city like Mangaluru. The beauty of the house depends upon its garden and surroundings. Mrs Lilly Pinto s creative container garden at Karangalpady/Mangaluru is an awesome site for the garden lovers. Beautiful landscape.
