Government House Garden Featured in Spectrum

Our transformative project on the Eastern Terrace of Government House has recently been featured in the Sydney Morning Herald. You can read the Spectrum article here.

The garden has been well received thus far, and we are looking forward to seeing how it evolves over the next few years. We have prepared a detailed maintenance plan for the garden, considering the successional nature of the plantings, and how best to keep it presented to the standard required by Government House.

Groundcovers blend together to form a diverse edge – Chrysocephalum, Dampiera, Pelargonium, and Brachyscome

Smoke haze on site, climatic conditions present a challenge to an already ambitious garden
