This suburban sanctuary was designed to encourage local wildlife to visit the garden, and as a place for the owners to relax and entertain. Inspired by our Best in Show ‘HABITAT’ creation at the 2009 Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show, this landscape also required areas for organic, home-grown vegetables and herbs; and creating a sustainable garden with a low water requirement.
Working with pre-existing features of the property was a priority in the design - including the front carport, substantial Eucalypt tree and callistemons. Castlemaine slate replaced the concrete verandah. Dromana dust paths wind through the rear of the property, guiding you through the garden whilst also acting as permeable surfaces so that water can reach sub surface layers.
