This nine-acre property was formerly degraded farmland but has been completely transformed by the owner / landscape designer over the past 18 years.
The overall design is a fusion of ‘Picturesque’ and formal design, using circles in many guises to create more intense and controlled garden spaces, which punctuate an informal park-like atmosphere.
Structural plantings including avenues, screening and boundary hedges and birch groves, complement more intense gardens such as the Blue Garden, White Borders, Iris Axis, Crescent Parterre, Tapestry Garden, Hub Garden and Vegetable Garden, which have been developed and constantly changed over the last 10 years (and are still a work in progress).
The main residence and adjacent gardens were more recently completed and nestle into the established landscape.
Guided tours of the garden will be conducted at 11.00am, 1.00pm and 3.00pm by the owner/designer on both days.
A sausage sizzle will be held 11.00am–1.00pm both days by the CFA.
Other activities and local attractions include in the local area include:
Verdicus is open for the benefit of the Tylden Primary School.

Duneira and Verdicus are only 25 minutes travel time apart with the potential for lunch in between!
