  • Mini garden plots for the owners' six grandchildren
  • Organic gardening principles
  • Raised wicking beds and composting area


Having previously opened the gates of their beautiful property for Open Gardens SA, the owners of Bellevue are happy to now share their productive garden, which is located at the rear of the property behind a regularly used grass tennis court screened by an espaliered quince and persimmon.

The productive garden is comprised of six main raised wicking beds. These large timber sleeper beds have been sourced from an old bridge and have steel tubes in each corner creating a frame to allow their vegetables to climb up where required.

After living here for more than 40 years, the owners' requirements of the vegetable garden have changed and now they only plant what they plan on eating, and don’t use any pesticides or herbicides on their organic patch.

Beyond the raised beds, low stone walls act as a boundary for beds full of herbs, citrus, beneficial perennials as well as composting area that is well worked and utilized throughout the garden. 

Understanding the importance of being aware of where food comes from, the owners have allocated their six grandchildren their own little individual plots to grow things seasonally, which really sparks their enthusiasm for growing and eating what they produce. 

The owners are also happy for visitors to have a look around their professionally designed, drought-hardy Mediterranean and French styled garden.


Please note: this garden may not be suitable for wheelchairs as there is a gravel drive.

Size: 200sqm


$20 for four gardens     $50 for all gardens
