'Heartland' is a personally expressive and experimental garden of 350-400 square meters. This garden is influenced by Jac's rural childhood, generations of plantswomen and time in Australian landscapes.

It demonstrates what is possible with a plant driven approach on a suburban home block by a busy couple. It is an achievable example of what a gardener can squeeze into on a house block with a vegie patch, cut flowers, potting shed, chicken coop, and a green wall tucked into the backyard.

Ornamental plantings utilise a broad palette of perennials and annuals, both Australian native and exotic plants. In three years, the garden has transformed from concrete and lawn and is still 'in progress' and developing, as gardens always are.

Highlights include:

  • perennial gardens and rain-fed verge garden
  • walled courtyard with pizza oven, outdoor bath and potting shed; and
  • productive backyard with vegie patch, cut flowers, chickens and small orchard.

Gate takings will be used to support a Greenhouse for plant propogation.

There is some street parking, but please be respectful of neighbours. You can also access this garden from Frankston station and local buses. There is no toilet on site, but public toilets in close proximity in central Frankston.
