What a rare opportunity to be able to see two very different stages of gardens, one newly planted and one well established. These two unit’s also have very different styles of garden with very different feels. One is flat and one is on a steep slope. Both showcase how small spaces can be creative places. Also see the newly planted perennial garden bed that fronts both units. 

Brit and Caleb own Unit 4. Brit started her own plant and horticulture business so brings a passion to their garden which is a new garden, planted and completed over the last 12 months. The garden is equipped with pathways starting with a coastal theme, leading through to a Japanese inspired area, followed by a native rockery garden, and leading into a lush rainforest inspired fernery. As a carpenter, Caleb tends to salvage materials to recycle and up-cylce into new projects. From this, they have created and built all of the feature projects in the garden, including two timber seating areas. Many of the species of plants chosen throughout the garden needed to withstand the many different seasons Melbourne offers. Keeping this in mind, many natives were used throughout the garden, keeping in mind the ‘theme’ of the areas they are planted in.

Unit 5 is owned by Steven Wells. Steven is an advocate for therapeutic gardens and was the instigator for designing and implementing the therapeutic gardens at The Austin Hospital Rehabilitation Centre (a project we proudly funded though our Giving Program). Steven is a gardener and DIY expert and his extremely creative garden, and extensive knowledge around gardening and plants,  is a reflection of his ability to grow up as well as down! You might have seen Steven on Better Homes and Gardens, Gardening Australia and Garden Gurus!
