Bush garden Planting Guide & Tips

Garden Type

Unlike a formal garden the Bush Garden has no neat borders or clearly defined lines. This style draws inspiration from nature and is meant to reflect the natural flora of the surrounding environment. The look is natural and wild, so use a mix of local native plant species, but don’t be afraid to mix in some exotic flowering plants to enhance the colour in your garden. Typically the best plants for a bush garden are those that are known for their durability; require very little maintenance; and are able to handle less water and drier conditions. Take a look at our plant collection, where you’ll find the likes of Bush Haze Kangaroo Paw, Grevillea or Argyle Apple plus other plant species best suited for your bush garden.
