Eltham: A Bush Garden

Martin-Ford Garden

Respond creatively to the client's beautifully renovated Alistair Knox mid-century period home where the house sits within the landscape. The aim was to rejuvenate and reinstate a naturalistic bush garden and rock work whilst creating a generous outdoor space to dine and entertain friends and family. Added vegetable garden beds, improved the entrance to the house and addressed drainage issues and screened out poor views.


A degraded bush garden. Un-impressive driveway entrance with drainage issues, a weedy garden and without understory planting, devoid of anywhere to eat outside.
