View Presentation


The Native Garden is a demonstration garden that showcases innovative and artistic ways of using water-wise non-invasive Australian native plants, as well as the use of local, sustainable and recycled materials in the domestic garden within the Adelaide region. The design is site specific, working with existing conditions and features both within and beyond the garden and offering inspiration in the form of a number of varied garden expressions. The Australian Native Garden is a South Australian Government Sustainable Landscape Project.

“It is skillfully composed and executed, arranging a diversity of spaces and garden rooms into a constrained site that presents various technical difficulties. The project has exceeded expectations of the client as an exemplar demonstration project that promotes the use of native plants and sustainable materials.” — Jury
