This Surrey Hills garden is open this weekend as part of Open Gardens Australia. Designed by E-GA over 10 years ago, it was the garden that initially attracted the current owners and eventually led to them purchasing the property. The lush green front garden provides a welcoming sanctuary with abundant tree canopies and draping foliage.

The Boston Ivy clad pergola allows the owners to experience all seasons, providing shade during the summer months, displaying a wonderful autumn colour, and then allowing additional light during Winter.

Natural stone, generous beds and curved gravel paths give a sense of space against deep shrubberies.  The pergola is surrounded by daphnes, oak-leaf hydrangeas, cordylines, liriope and hellebores to create a relaxed woodland feel. The bush oasis continues through the back garden with the presence of a couple of Spotted Gums in addition to the borrowed gums from neighbouring properties.
