The second-generation owners of this country garden located in central Victoria commissioned Ben to design and rework sections of the existing garden.

 

The driveway forecourt was formalised with a central circular fountain, creating a grand entrance for visitors. Providing a spacious parking area, the forecourt also frames the spectacular view through to the ornamental lake, woodland and Cathedral Mountains beyond. The herbaceous perennial and rose borders were updated, creating a more coherent planting scheme.

“Walk the ground of heavenly Heatherly, a rural Victorian garden where reverence and new ideas have reaped gorgeous rewards.”
