Garden Guide

BUNDANOON GARDEN RAMBLE - 27 & 28 October 2018 ...

Garden No 3

A large garden hidden from view welcomes visitors who enter and walk past a calm pond and follow the winding garden around underneath the hill which forms a wonderful protective backdrop to this interesting space. A mixture of formality with winding lines of pruned hedges and stone walls creating corridors around the hillside. Birches gumtrees and native plants provide a glorious line for the meandering paths. Fruit trees and a productive vegetable garden add to the garden interest. Birds and native wildlife add to the feeling of a sanctuary for the owners.

Garden No 6

An old dairy farm which has been transformed by a combination of plantings to get the best out of the garden whilst protecting it from destructive winds. Beautiful old Angophoras frame the rear yard with a gazebo added to provide interest. Natives, perennials and exotics give a rambling appearance, shape and colour.
Mosaics placed discretely throughout draws the eye, without dominating. Salvias, a garden favourite encourage birds and bees with roses, viburnums and assorted bulbs making it worth seeing.

Garden No 1

A lot of history in this home has given the owners inspiration to creat a lovely functional but calm garden that does justice to the house!
New to gardening they have sought advice on how to design the space incorporating the pergola with the fruit and kitchen garden at the rear of the house. Wisteria gives a stunning show on the bullnose verandas with the aged oak trees shading the garden in the warmer months. Maples, pear trees, flowering cherry and Japanese crabapple soften the old home and provide colour during the seasons. At every angle this old beauty provides areas of quiet contemplation for those visiting it, to sit and reflect.

Garden No 8

A cool climate garden which comes into its' own in the warmer months. This is a relaxed garden that radiates the philosophy 'Let the Garden go!' This is reflected in the planting's with differing shades of green making a cool, green oasis which draws the garden visitor to the circular path through the rose arbor and wisteria walk.
A feeling of quiet serenity overcomes one and it is difficult to leave!

Garden Delights for visitors to enjoy!

Gardens this year offer a mixture of interesting bits for visitors to wander around and enjoy. Original garden sculptures, delightful coloured ceramics, native plants and mature trees will ensure extra attractions to four of the eight gardens.
