This suburban block is a wonderful example of how a garden can be created from a very challenging site. It is set on a north-facing steep slope, and utilises a number of tiers and a boardwalk to bring visitors on a journey through a delightful mix of deciduous trees, perennials and succulents. Many of the plantings are used in local floral arts displays. A large deck gives visitors a chance to have a bird’s-eye view over the garden.
There will also be plants and floral art for sale.
You may be interested to know that Stephen Ryan is giving a talk on a range of topics at The Soil Yard, 426 Sutton Street, Delacombe, on Sunday 30 April at 1.30 pm - in conjunction with the Ballarat Floral Art annual display.
