Leylandagreen

 

We are privileged to own Leylandagreen, an 11 acre (4.5 hectare) property located near Bowral in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, Australia which we acquired in 2006.

Leylandagreen is a very special place.  The garden, which incorporates magnificent English - style plantings, combined with rolling lawns and parklands, has undergone a significant transformation in the time we have owned the property.  It has as its focal point a large lake - encompassing almost 2 acres - which not only provides a wonderful vista but also enables us to maintain the gardens despite the vagaries of Australia's climate. The property - it was featured in the December, 2012 edition of Highlife magazine - is now recognised as one of the best in the Highlands.

Kim Rabbidge, a leading Australian Garden writer and photojournalist,  writes a regular blog - "Our Australian Gardens".  Leylandagreen featured in her February 15, 2013 article on landscape designer Michael Bligh - the man behind the transformation of our garden. The photos in her blog are not mine but Kim has done a wonderful job in highlighting some of the features of Leylandagreen in Spring. To view the article click on the link below.

Leylandagreen is available for advertising and film location shoots; for weddings and wedding photographs; for photography club outings; and for garden clubs and charitable groups to visit.

 

Getting There

From Sydney (app 90 minutes) take the M5/Hume Highway until the Mittagong exit. Proceed through Mittagong, take the Bowral turnoff and continue through the township. At the end of the main street (Bong Bong Street) is a large roundabout - take the left hand exit and follow Kangaloon Road past the Golf Course/Cemetery; go through another roundabout - take the second exit - then  yet another roundabout (at the Christian School), again taking the second exit.  Approximately 1.2 km from this point you will see a large sign on your left indicating "Sproule's Lane".  The entrance to Leylandagreen is directly behind the Sproule's Lane sign - the property with the pine tree hedging.
