Don't miss the award-winning Clarkefield Garden, open this weekend as part of Open Gardens Australia.
With summer in the air and Christmas just around the corner, what better time to get inspired and experience the pleasure of spending time in this sprawling Clarkefield Garden, which has just been awarded the LIAV Best Residential Landscape over $200k.
Designed and built by Phillip Johnson Landscapes, this landscape incorporates a large dam being fed by a stream filtering water through a series of billabongs. Typical of Phillip Johnson’s style and design, the plantings are indigenous and require little water beyond that which falls from the sky.
Beyond the newly added landscape is a more traditional country garden. The entire garden at 1556 Lancefield Rd, Clarkefield will be open this Saturday and Sunday, December 6 and 7, from 10am until 4.30pm as part of Open Gardens Australia. Entry is $12 for over 18s and children are free.
You can enjoy locally produced wines and olive oils, and there will also be home-made produce and products, a BBQ, morning and afternoon tea, a coffee cart, plants for sale, and bronze birdbaths by Willie Wildlife Sculptures.
And to top it all off, Phillip will conduct guided tours of the garden at 11am and 2pm each day.
