Garden Design Study Group: Johnson & Kruczaj Garden
Blayney, New South Wales
Fiona Johnson and Alex Kruczaj’s house is situated just below the brow of a hill and the main part of the garden runs downhill from the house. Fiona has planted many interesting plants in an intensive series of beds, with contrasting sized plants. We all commented on how beautifully the leptospermums were flowering here. The gravel paths were edged with many different types of daisy. Acacia falciformis or Mountain Hickory was in full flower and a magnet for insects. Alex has built some beautiful stone walls for the garden and also added some quirky metal artwork. Fiona has planted some tanks above the ground with indigenous plants to give them better drainage.
