An 'organic' garden with winding paths evokes the feel of the bush, with low plants (brachyscomes, scaevolas, hibbertias) softening the pathway edges. Taller shrubs form the middle layer (chorizemas, phebaliums, thomasias, etc) and trees provide height and structure, as well as filtered light and habitat for birds. Wildlife also benefits from the small pond, bird baths and clumps of grassy Orthrosanthus laxus.
The design is very subtle, with repeat planting of carefully selected and pruned plants and repetition of hard landscape materials, weaving into a coherent whole. Well-placed pots feature hard-to-grow plants. The garden extends to the nature strip, which is planted with everlasting daisies and grasses. The whole garden is full of interest that feels welcoming – and simultaneously intimate and spacious.
Plants will be available for sale at the garden opening by renowned propagator of unusual Australian plants, Chris Fletcher.
