Up Country Swimming Pool


Since its conception twenty years ago, this five acre garden north of Melbourne has recieved less and less rain. And so with climate change in mind, recent renovations by new owners of the property have been based around drought tolerant plant design.

The garden wraps around a centrally placed homestead and is made up of many compartments that are linked by a double entry diveway, access roads and gravelled pathways. Within these spaces are a tennis court, a swimming pool and a series of floating timber decks which connect the house with the gardens and main entertaining area to the north.

The soft landscape is of hardier exotic trees, shrubs and ground covers. They roll through the property in amoeboid shaped beds that encircle inner lawns and buildings. The property also gives many beautiful vistas – mainly internal garden views but also some beautiful panoramas overlooking the Northern hills of Melbourne.

This is a property owned by passionate gardeners who generously open it for public and private viewings throughout the year. – from Eckersley Garden Architecture
