The owners have established this large mature suburban garden over the last 25+ years. It is designed to provide colour and interest all year round. Natives and exotics combine to create a gardener’s garden. Entry is up a battleaxe driveway to a sloping ¼ hectare block which backs on to Mt Rogers Reserve in Melba. A large Yellow Box tree is a drawcard for many bird species living in the area. There are a number of bird baths, fountains and sculptures.

The owners will be delighted to discuss their garden, features, and systems with visitors.

Davenport Garden Notes are available.
