Brimbank Grassland Gardens

Flora Victoria was originally established to create these landscapes for Brimbank City Council in 1998. Although our focus has changed to much larger revegetation projects, we still like to create inspiring indigenous landscapes.

Goonawarra Entrance Beds

The Goonawarra entrance beds on Lancefield Rd Sunbury were designed and planted by Flora Victoria in 2005 in the middle of a long drought. This small project for Hume City Council included several beds along both sides of Sunningdale Ave.

In 2006 Flora Victoria treated some of the highly erodible soils along roadsides at Emu Valley near Sunbury.

This batter was also covered in weeds.

Native Grass Lawns

Occasionally Flora Victoria sow lawn areas with native grass. Some native grasses are suitable for the creation of low biomass drought tollerant turf.

Wallaby Grass can be used to create a drought tollerant lawn.

When a pipeline was constructed in the City of Whittlesea at the Quarry Hills Reserve in 2009, Flora Victoria revegetated the site using a mix of local grass species.
