Selling Houses Australia

The best gardens from 10 seasons of Selling Houses Australia

With a brand new season just around the corner, we've dug up the best garden makeovers from the last ten seasons of Selling Houses Australia.

Charlie Albone has worked many miracles over the last ten years, transforming countless dilapidated gardens into the green havens synonymous with Aussie backyard culture. With plenty more makeovers to come when the new season premieres on Wednesday March 7, we're counting down some of Charlie's most memorable garden revamps.

West Footscray - Season 3

With a decent makeover budget of $25,000, this weatherboard cottage was transformed with a new patio, creating a stylish and versatile outdoor entertaining space.

Neutral Bay - Season 5

With a steep and overgrown garden, it was up to Charlie to rescue this property. The site specs didn't make things easy but he managed to turn things around, building a sweet day bed and urban oasis beneath a tropical canopy of trees, overlooking impressive city views.

Wollongong - Season 6

This property in Wollongong's enormous garden was overshadowed by the multi-storey apartments next door, which had balconies looking right into the garden. Charlie stepped in to try and make the overbearing block disappear, planting a bamboo wall to create privacy.

Kenthurst - Season 7

Set on seven acres of land, this garden makeover was no mean feat. Charlie built a pontoon overlooking the property's pretty dam and surroundings. The pool area was also dressed with pots, plants and outdoor furniture to fill the space and add some life.

Grays Point - Season 7

Despite being set on the waterfront, this backyard was a wreck. Charlie concentrated on a paved sandstone outdoor seating area complete with a rustic fire pit. This created a relaxing, usable area, close to the water to really highlight the best feature of this waterfront property.

Batehaven - Season 8

Charlie's main goal for this pintsized courtyard was to create an attractive usable outdoor room. He installed beautiful sandstone paving and a floating bench with planting underneath. A mirrored wall provided privacy and also helped bounce light around the garden, creating the illusion of space.

St Mary’s - Season 8

The old cottage was ugly and dated, and Charlie created street appeal with a bold grey, black and white colour scheme. The backyard was in desperate need of an outdoor entertaining area, so Charlie built a huge deck that doubled as an extra living room, adding real value to the property.

New Norfolk - Season 10

The façade of this ramshackle house desperately needed a facelift - Charlie repainted the house, replacing the rotting pergola and removing the rusted latticework and yellow window. The courtyard to the side of the property was revived with the exterior house paint, a new outdoor setting and pot plants.

Selling Houses Australia Season 11 starts Wednesday March 7, 8.30pm.
