Open Garden in November! (2012)

Artists John and Gillian Borrack open their Mernda garden to the public

Originally created by Gordon Ford in the 1970s this garden has evolved over four decades to become the sanctuary it is today. As urban development has encroached on their rural outlook, John and Gillian commissioned Sam to rethink the garden in a way that screened them from the suburban aesthetic of small house blocks, concrete and asphalt. The original design featured one of Gordon's first natural style swimming pools. Sam's additions in 2006 include a stunning expanse of grassy clearings linking buildings to the bush and a recent renovation of the pool. Sam will be on site on Saturday 17th to talk to visitors. Location: 30 Regent St, Mernda 10am-4.30pm entry $7.00
