A Majestic Restoration For A Legendary Heritage Garden

Local legend has it that this one-acre property in Deepdene, nine kilometres east of Melbourne’s CBD, was designed by William Guilfoyle in the 1860s. The creator of the Royal Botanic Gardens himself!

The historic suburban garden was brought to life over a century and a half ago, and contains plant life nearly as old. It’s even listed on the National Trust! The garden-loving clients who embarked upon the restoration project required a landscaping team who were sympathetic to the history of the plot and dedicated to restoring the heritage garden to its original grandeur. It required a lot of, well… trust!

Landscape designers Ian Barker Gardens were up to the task, combining modern practices with heritage style to ensure the charm of this slice of horticultural history for many years to come.
