A long elm-lined driveway leads to this stunning garden. Well-known Melbourne Nurseryman, Barry Teese of ‘The Greenery’, Heidelberg , with assistance from Rick Eckersley, designed and planted this amazing garden. On completion in 2003, it was opened to the public and showcased on Burke’s Backyard.
The basic plantings of hundreds of beautiful trees including maples, manchurian pears, weeping cherries, crepe myrtles and cypress shelter belts, the enormous hedges creating wonderful axis and garden rooms, the thousands of bulbs planted in the silver birch woodland and the extensive rose gardens, have all benefitted from the meticulous pruning and expert care. The extra maturity gained over the years since the first opening, now sees this garden becoming one of Victoria’s top gardens.
Built brick pillars frame the gateways into the many garden rooms, artfully placed statues including those representing the four seasons which were brought back from Italy in the 1970’s, the water features and the ‘borrowed landscape’ of the surrounding attractive farmland and the fertile Glenburn Valley.
Located in Glenburn Victoria, a little over an hour from Melbourne, Glenburn Station is perfect for a unique wedding.
