Native gardens are a great way to create an attractive and environmentally-friendly garden, but did you know that they can also be edible?

Acknowledgement of Country

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we work and live and recognise their continuing connection to this beautiful land. We pay our respects to Elders past, present, and emerging.

We thank you for the wisdom you offer of the bush, and we hope to work alongside your traditional methods to honour, restore, and preserve our Earth.

Native gardens make great alternative to lawn

Native gardens can also be used in a verge garden to green up your suburb. They are waterwise, low maintenance, and wildlife, bird, and insect attracting – it’s no wonder why this type of garden is so popular amongst homeowners!

We can design your edible garden based on the following garden styles:

Formal garden
Natural bush land
Cottage garden.

Disclaimer: Our verge gardens all comply with council regulations. It is up to you to organise the necessary permits specific to your local area.

Popular bush tucker plants

Finger lime

A sought-after ingredient by chefs worldwide, finger limes are small citrus fruits that are packed with vitamins and bursting with flavour. The zesty pulp is akin to a “fruit caviar” and is a perfect addition to summer drinks and desserts.

Bush basil

A fast-growing perennial herb, bush basil has a strong basil-like flavour that complements any pasta or tomato-based dish. It is an attractive shrub with large bee attracting purple flowers and a great addition to a sensory garden.

Mydium berry

This small shrub yields small, speckled fruit that are similar to blueberries in taste with eucalyptus-like overtones. Children will love these “lollies of nature”!

Ruby Saltbush

These hardy shrubs grow almost everywhere in Australia and can withstand poor quality soils, drought, and frost. They flower and fruit all year round, producing a sweet and salty tasting berry which can be eaten raw or brewed into a tea.
