A bit of England Down Under Take inspiration from this charming country garden
Ramble through this country garden for your taste of old-world charm
heavily (and heavenly) influenced by formal English country estates, this garden uses the lovely rolling hills of the Gippsland district in the Victorian countryside as a backdrop. Perennials and roses give bursts of colour, while expanses of lawn give the impression the garden is much larger than it is. Take a walk around and pick up ideas for your place along the way.
Create interest by contrasting colours and leaf textures
If mowing the lawns has become tiresome, put in a water feature, fill it with fish to keep away mosquitoes, and add water lilies for their beauty.
2 Extend your view by taking advantage of the landscape next door. 3 Ensure a great first impression by creating a formal entrance with box hedges clipped into neat patterns.
4 Mix the tall with the small, in no particular pattern, and the formal with the informal to maintain visual engagement.
