Two stylish stacked stone pillars stand either side of a long narrow driveway which leads into this very secluded garden. Hardy low growing perennials line the driveway and a row of eucalypts tower above them. Inside the garden a smoke bush and two golden ash trees with a borrowed backdrop of more eucalypts continue above the fence line which surprisingly is just below the SE Freeway. On the other side a magnificent old river red gum is underplanted with pink Bonica roses.

Beside the carport the house almost disappears behind a semi-circular raised garden bed with a central pond surrounded by a mix of shrubs, irises and roses.

Stone work features throughout – some added when the garden was re-designed a few years ago. Lavenders, roses, salvias, sedums and kangaroo paw in a long perennial border provide year-round colour. Box hedging borders pathways and bottlebrushes trimmed as a hedge form a tall dense screen. A pergola is covered with wisteria and beside this the box hedging continues. Clipped abelia interspersed with nandina add to the formality of this lovely area and a row of ornamental pear trees provides more shade.

Fruit trees have been expertly espaliered along the fence. Trees and structures create areas of dense shade and as well there are hot sunny spots.

With appropriate plant selection this very pretty garden flourishes and is a wonderful example of how to make the most of micro-climates in a garden.


Please note: there is a bee hive and there is also a pond.

There is limited parking in Spring Court, but parking is available in adjacent streets.

Size: 2000 sqm.


The nominated charity for this garden is Multiple Sclerosis.
