What we’ll do

We'll meet in my own home garden situated in the glorious bushland suburb of Bilgola Plateau on Sydney's beautiful Northern Beaches. We'll dive right into the Garden Design process, looking at examples and discussing the following: *Understanding your garden style. *Understanding your site: existing vegetation, local ecosystem, soil, micro-climate influences, services, orientation, access. …

What else you should know

No prior knowledge required! And you don't need to have an existing garden to learn from this Experience. It's meant to be fun and informative. Please remember we will be walking through a busy garden so there are the usual hazards: uneven ground, insects, direct sun so please dress appropriately.

What I’ll provide

Snacks
Light and healthy afternoon tea
Coffee, Tea and Water

What to bring

Photos of your own garden [or potential garden], balcony, courtyard, plants
Magazine images, Pinterest boards, favourite Instagram accounts - anything which illustrates the type of garden or plants you like
if you have them - any house plans, property plans, real estate plans etc that show the size and shape of your property

Where you'll be

Our time together will take place in my home garden which is situated in a beautiful bushland street officially recognised for its natural beauty. From the towering Sydney Red Gums of my street to the patchwork of colourful flowers, shrubs, potted plants, succulents, bonsais, herbs and trees [and all the attendant birdlife] in my own garden, variety and interest are guaranteed!
