A sprawling NSW Country Garden tonight on season finale of DREAM GARDENS

Advertisement

In Morpeth, NSW, aspiring farmers Sarah-Jane and Luke are building a whole new life on the land.

At the centre is Sarah-Jane’s dream of a sprawling country garden. But with the couple’s funds already stretched across the construction of a new homestead and their bourgeoning bison herd, they will need to do most of the hard work themselves, despite possessing little horticultural knowledge.

Landscape designer Ryan McMahon is the man tasked with guiding Sarah-Jane and Luke in their first botanical foray. Ryan’s plans outline sweeping garden beds that will gently traverse the property, lending a sense of elegance and fluidity to what will essentially be a working farm.

Meanwhile, host Michael McCoy visits Moving Water, a suburban garden on the Mornington Peninsula born from a special collaboration between Aboriginal landscape consultant Charles Solomon and landscape architect Jim Fogarty.

Planted with culturally significant native botany that can tolerate both the soggy winter rains and arid summer conditions, Charlie and Jim’s cultural inspiration unite aesthetic and practical considerations.

This is something Sarah-Jane and Luke need to embrace themselves. Land is money on a farm so the garden too will need to earn its keep. But with all their grit, will the couple be able to contend with drought, flood, and their own inexperience, to see their dream for a beautiful, productive garden bear fruit?

Production credits: Supervising Executive Producer, Frances O’Riordan. Executive Producer, Jane Rowley, Series Producer, Leisa Pratt.

Dream Gardens – Series 3, Episode 6 airs Friday 6 August 8.00pm on ABC and iview
