Landscape garden

Description

This landscape garden won the 2014 Landscape Victoria Awards for “Plants In the Landscape”.  With its natural Stingy Bark twisted trees, the design highlights and enhances these beautiful sculptural trees.  The plants are the landscape, attracting wildlife and frogs, with evidence of children climbing and playing in this space.  The use of north facing sun has been harnessed in the court yard close to the house, offering a completely different micro-climate, and protection from the southerly breeze.

This landscape garden was in the Open Gardens Australia for a special twilight event in January 2014 & 2015.  With features such as decking, stonewalls and plantings that are drought hardy and indigenous. Monies raised from these garden openings were donated to the Anglesea CFA.

 Plants in Landscape Award –Landscape Victoria Judge, Bryan Rankin- Lifetime Member said…

“WOW! This is an exceptional garden. The plants in this garden are the landscape. The existing trees have been made features in the overall landscape, and new plantings have been done to compliment and further highlight the existing trees.

The use of native plants in a structured manner has worked really well, and the retention of an undisturbed strip of indigenous vegetation has been sensitively incorporated into the landscape.

It was also great to see that this was a space that was explored and utilised by the whole family.”
