Loved the webinar today - thank you for inviting me along 🍃Are you a lover of the Chelsea Flower Show? Sustainable landscape designer Phillip Johnson generated rare garden-related headlines when his ‘Australian Garden’ took out the Best in Show award at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2013, with his extraordinary design for a garden designed to connect humanity back to the beauty of nature. This incredible design is not only a stunning display of Australian native plants, including rare and endangered natives from Gondwana, it is an exemplar of sustainability with water-wise design and habitat creation.

Phillip now has the joy of recreating this Australian Garden right here in our own backyard adjacent to the Dandenong Ranges Botanic Garden.

This garden will be fully sustainable. It will use an off-grid power system, host a bushfire prevention system, harness water from runoff and be accessible by local CFA crews.
We will use local materials, local rock and we want locals involved.
Our aim is connect people back to the beauty of nature.
We need your help, go to www.peopleandparks.org/ to see how you can help #peopleandparks #fundagarden #fundraiser #connecttonature

A few more pictures of our garden in the Strathbogie bush ranger region and words from the clients in yesterday’s article in The Australian -
For the landscaping they chose Johnson, a native garden specialist. “We’d seen Phillip’s book and his Best in Show garden at the Chelsea Flower Show,” says Dot. “Given the terrain and windy conditions here, we thought natives would be the only things to survive.” Johnson is also noted for his love of working with rock. “Well, there’s plenty of rocks here,” Eddie deadpans. “It was a leap of faith,” says Dot. “And we certainly haven’t been disappointed.”
We loved working in this stunning location and having the opportunity to create something to enhance this already
