The landscape was softened by the introduction of a broad plant palette with a diverse range of colours and textures, also creating habitat for the local fauna. The plants selected needed to be frost tolerant due to the cooler and at times harsh climate of the Dandenongs.IMG_1550Castlemaine rock was placed strategically throughout the landscape providing shape and form to garden beds surrounding the lake.
