Bananas – William Angliss Institute We planted these a year or so ago in a dreadful area in this large kitchen garden for William Angliss Institute, in the heart of Melbourne.

Bush Food Garden we designed and planted with Seymour P12 school looking good after summer rains. #bushfoods #indigenousplants #schoolgarden
Involving students, volunteers and workers from the school and GBCMA, a lot of time, thought and preparation has gone into the garden and I know that it will be an impressive feature in the school for years to come.

Edible plants took over the iconic symbols of the festival like triffids, with sunflowers and colourful chillies popping up amongst the giant cutlery and beans scrambling up the giant glass. Wall gardens burst […]

The brief for this garden was simple- to supply Anada Restaurant in Gertrude Street, Fitzroy with as much home grown produce as possible. On a small budget the team was able to transform the backyard into a backyard farm, as well as transfer knowledge and skills to the clients to enable the successful continuation of the project.
This sky-high garden brings a lot of produce and joy to the Loughlan family since we installed it several years ago.
A simple design to bring colour and life to the front garden of a period home with most of the flowers seen here being edible or useful.
A sunny corner of this country garden was just right for this kitchen garden, which proved highly productive in its first year for the delighted Murphy family.
Corten steel has given a totally new look to this small courtyard garden in Brunswick. Rustic slate and black painted paling fences have further enriched the colour theme and are a dense background for the garden’s lush bamboo and citrus plants.
After renovations the clients employed Edible Eden Design to rejuvenate and extend their rear entertaining area, with recycled brick paving, garden beds and rustic timber seating. The majority of the materials were recycled from site in order to keep costs down and retain the garden’s personality and charm. Cracker the Cockatoo supervised the work…
A central courtyard has been rejuvenated with a welcoming seat to enjoy time amongst native plants, bush foods and herbs for the residents to share.
Timber crates make for a playful kitchen garden in a corner of this native garden we designed many years ago.
A lovely edible ornamental garden for a period home in Yarraville we planted a few months ago – the gorgeous silver Coastal Saltbush should be used more in horticulture I believe.
Made from purely recycled materials this adobe seat provides a perfect frame for a small courtyard as well as catering for large numbers when entertaining.
The brief for this garden was to be beautiful, full of edible plants and flowers for the house. The recently modernized house is a dramatic backdrop for the pretty new edible garden. The front garden is entered through a fragrant herb walk and grows abundant flowers for cutting. Back garden beds are full of flowering herbs begging […]
This garden featured in GardenDesignFest 2012 This garden surrounds its Californian Bungalow home with a firmly Australian flavour. The front garden references Edna Walling, with random Castlemaine slate paving and a soft mix of natives and exotics. ‘Edna Walling’ cultivars have been used to pay homage to this iconic designer. The back garden was built […]
The school contacted us to install a Rain Garden and Frog Pond assisted by a grant from Melbourne Water. The most suitable site found for a Rain Garden was an underutilised shelter area, surrounded by weedy plantings of Cotoneaster. The area features an educational Rain Garden that was built by the students working with the […]
For this stately period home overlooking the Merri Creek, the garden called for a sensitive blend of natives and non-native plants. The front is softly formal, with Box hedges enclosing a flowery garden. In the back garden, granitic sand paths entice the visitor to wander though bird-attracting native and colourful non-native plants. A frog pond […]
This garden needed to provide a backdrop for a new entertaining area, beautify a steep slope and screen the prominent carport. The owners were open to the suggestion of a garden designed entirely with edible plants, in this case used in a modern-formal setting/style. Stainless steel espaliers frame the side fences, cascading Rosemary ‘Blue Lagoon’ […]
