Working Bee at Stonefields

Ian Barker Garden Maintenance at Paul Bangay's garden Stonefields helping out during early Spring
Last weekend our dedicated garden maintenance team headed up to Denver in Central Victoria to lend a hand at Stonefields, the iconic private garden of one of Australia’s most celebrated garden designers, Paul Bangay.
The working bee at Stonefields takes place annually, and our maintenance team are always excited to get the opportunity to work in such a highly renowned and truly special garden.
We were blessed with some absolutely gorgeous weather, and thoroughly enjoyed being out in the sunshine  taking in the beautiful surrounds, and of course putting in a good days work!
The beauty of Stonefields is that despite many of the plants being dormant in Winter and only just beginning to come back to life now, the garden still looks spectacular and didn’t fail to impress!
Many thanks to Paul and his team for hosting us. We can’t wait for next year!
