With the often-harsh Australian climate to work with and mounting concerns for the environment, Richmond-based Eckersley Garden Architecture has designed this drought tolerant garden to bring life and vibrancy to the outdoors, even when rain is scarce. The garden encircles the house with its gravel walkways, timber decks, a swimming pool, a tennis court and organically shaped plant beds featuring hearty trees, shrubs and groundcovers. This landscaped garden provides many wonderful vistas on both the small and large scale, from the juxtaposition of unusual plants and trees, to the grand hills of northern Melbourne on the horizon. "This is a property owned by passionate gardeners who generously open it for public and private viewings throughout the year." Eckersley Garden Architecture.
