Gardening and lawn care tips from the pros

The Abbotsford Convent is just four kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD, and is made up of historic buildings and gardens.

It is adjacent to the Yarra River and Yarra Bend Park.

Aside from the stunning and peaceful gardens, the convent is home to studios and offices for small businesses, a radio station, four eateries, an open air cinema, food and craft markets, two galleries, an extensive program of events and venues for rehearsals, performances, classes, workshops and conferences. 

Marg Allen and Joanne (Jo) Beescher are two part time gardeners who oversee all the maintenance of the grounds at the convent. 


They also have eight regular volunteers that come in every week or month to help out, in addition to groups of corporate volunteers. 

Marg says a lot of the big companies like Deloitte and PwC give their staff a day or two a year to do volunteer work somewhere and a lot of the staff choose to go to the convent, which is a huge help. 

Garden lawn experts agree beautiful lawns add value

Aussie lawns aren’t just a pretty face, according to a poll by garden and lawn experts, Victa.

Indeed, most Australians believe that a blanket of green adds value to their home. Not only that, but many of us understand that lawns have major environmental benefits.

The Victa Lawn Care Survey asked Aussies all about their lawns – what they use their lawns for, what the best thing is about their lawn, what they know about lawns, and how they maintain them. And the survey provided some interesting insights.
