Job of the Month – Glen Iris Project

House in South Eastern suburbs before undergoing a garden revamp with a landscape design by Ian Barker Gardens.
The existing garden of this beautiful house before the transformation by Ian Barker Gardens takes place.

This month, we are excited to share some details of the early stages of a job we are currently working on. This garden will incorporate a contemporary layout, with the planting to be a modern take on a perennial garden. Inspiration comes from Piet Oudolf, the father of the new perennial movement across the Northern Hemisphere. The design will integrate the existing swimming pool and tennis court and will feature a big lawn in addition to the mixed plantings.

The initial concepts have been well received and we’re looking to concentrate more on the planting in the next phase. Check out the initial sketches and watch this space for more updates as this interesting project progresses!
