“Spartacus” star Lucy Lawless is transforming a large potion of her New Zealand estate into a massive 17,000 square-foot garden.

The 43-year-old actress and Greenpeace Ambassador is reportedly spending hundreds of thousands on the new landscaping; said to include “a large raised stone vegetable garden, poultry house, rainwater tank, rolling lawns, a glass conservatory and courtyards.”(Pic of property here)

In an interview with Good Magazine last year, Lawless mentioned her gardening plans as part of her efforts to help her local environment.

Plant something! Anywhere you can, plant something! I am digging up my tennis court and putting in native trees to encourage the native birds to come in,” she said. “We have bees which I highly recommend. Makes the garden go off.”
