Landscaping with edibles is a modern and practical way to make the most of your outdoor space. Whether you have a large garden, small courtyard, or a balcony, with a range of compact edibles you can create a productive kitchen garden.

By cultivating your garden space, you can enjoy multiple benefits for your wellbeing. Not only will you create a beautiful and relaxing environment, but you will also grow fresh and nutritious ingredients for your cooking.

By using traditional techniques with a fresh look on some garden favourites, you can design a garden to literally fit your needs. Espalier and topiary techniques combined with the right plant choice is the secret to success.

Espalier and trellising are methods of training trees to grow flat against a wall or fence, creating a beautiful and productive feature. This technique is ideal for small spaces, as it allows you to grow a variety of trees and shrubs that can provide edible crops.

Ian Firth from Warners Nurseries talks landscaping with edibles Black Genoa Fig in Veggie Patch Fig with Mint & Watering Can

Some examples of plants that can be espaliered are:

Apples and pears:

These are classic fruits that come in different varieties, such as Gala, Pink Lady, Crimson Crisp, Nashi, Beurre Bosc, or Packham's Triumph. You can harvest fresh apples and pears from your own garden and enjoy them in pies, salads, or juices.

Citrus trees:

A traditional feature in Australian gardens, citrus offer fragrant flowers and juicy fruits. However, some varieties can grow too large, making it hard to harvest fruit and treat gall wasp infestation, a pest that causes swellings on branches and reduces fruit production.

Proven citrus trees for the garden are Meyer, Eureka or Lisbon lemon, Tahitian lime, Mediterranean sweet orange & calamondin cumquat. They can be grown in pots or in the ground & clipped to shape to fit your space, making it easy to harvest and treat.


These are delicious fruits that are easy to grow, as they do not need much water or fertiliser. You can grow Black Genoa figs as free-standing trees or espalier them if you have a smaller space. Figalicious is a wonderful compact growing tree that thrives in pots and a-re great for eating fresh or making jams or desserts.

Olives are another versatile fruit that can be grown in pots or espaliers. They offer longevity, are slow growing, and their silvergrey foliage and gnarly trunk (with age) are attractive features in themselves. They come in different varieties, each with its own flavour and use. Garden Harvest olives are ideal for pickling, while Del Morocco olives are good for oil production and Picholine are known as the ‘cocktail olive.’ Olives can be grown as attractive topiary balls and even planted out as a hardy screen.

Bay leaves are a staple herb for many dishes, and they are easy to grow in pots or in the ground. Topiary techniques can be applied; shape your bay tree into a small ball or a pyramid and place it near your back door for easy access. Extremely hardy, frost and dry tolerant, Bays can also be grown into a dense screening hedge creating the perfect backdrop to your garden. Their leaves are also good for repelling insects and moths.

Other fruits that you can grow in your garden include Pomegranate, Feijoa and Quince. These exotics are nutritious and can add variety and interest to your landscape with foliage colour and decorative flowers prior to fruiting. With a regular prune they can be kept trimmed and compact.

You can also consider what is underfoot as well. Viola hederacea is an attractive native ground cover with edible green leaves. Its violet and white flowers bloom prolifically from spring to autumn and make a colourful addition to salads.

Prostate rosemary is a hardy filler for garden beds and sprigs can be snipped to flavour roast lamb. Flowers again can be clipped for decoration and aroma. Moving into the world of herbaceous shrubs opens so many options with Thyme, Sage, and Mint

Landscaping with edibles not only creates a rewarding beautiful garden but is environmentally friendly and economical. You can save money on groceries, reduce food waste, and enjoy fresh and organic produce from your own garden. Contact your local independent Garden Centre to find out more and pick up some great growing tips and advice.

Is there more to steel edging than just "the look"?

Steel garden edging has become one of the leading products available to design and better maintain a beautiful garden across a wide range of landscape styles.

It is the preferred choice of professional landscapers and designers, appearing at major garden shows across the country. It has been heavily featured at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show now for several years.

The weathering steel "corten" – rusty look has in fact become a timeless classic for landscapers world wide, with demand for the product exponentially increasing.

Steel garden edging is typically more durable and generally easier to install than alternative edging solutions. Wooden edging has for many years been the traditional choice but quality timber is now hard to source with lower quality timber prone to rotting and splitting. Plastic edging, the budget option, can work well as temporary solution however easily warps in the harsh Australian summer and can create environmental issues as it degrades.

Ashton from Shapescaper provides an insight.

Higher timber profiles are difficult to shape into elegant curves where steel edging excels in both curved and straight installations.

Mild steel plate is an option but difficult to work with while the prefabricated modular kits now available take the stress out of transport and installation. Most steel edging kit manufacturers provide at least a ten-year structural guarantee. Manufactured steel edging is flexible enough to shape into any design yet very solid once in place. It is easily installed by both professional landscapers and DIY renovators alike.

SHAPESCAPER products have made DIY installation even easier with their predrilled alignment holes used across their entire range of edging, connectors, stakes and modular planter systems.

Steel edging offers reliable structural integrity with a design flexibility that creates a very pleasing aesthetic, while helping with maintenance of a growing garden.

It can be used to create a single stand out feature piece or alternatively used throughout a landscape to bring all the elements of your garden together.

A showpiece of the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show, the Boutique Garden Competition offers finalists an opportunity to showcase their design talents, push design boundaries, gain valuable industry experience and promote their business to all visitors at the Show.

Proudly presented by Landscaping Victoria Master Landscapers, 5 finalists have been selected to present a space that wows show visitors.

These leading and emerging landscape garden designers are asked to prepare a brief that utilises a 5x5m space and showcases their intimate knowledge of the art of landscape design.

Often these gardens reflect the dream backyards of many modern Australians, and provide visitors with inspiration as to what could be achieved in their own homes.

There are a number of rules and regulations that must be adhered to when building these display gardens in the World Heritage listed space: for example the construction of the garden must not impact the ground or have any construction that will penetrate the soil.

This alone shows that entrants must be able to think outside the box, to think creatively and use original design elements to make their garden a standout at the Show.

The following pages celebrate the 2024 finalists of the Boutique Gardens competition.

Above: 3 of the Boutique Gardens displayed at the 2023 Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show: (clockwise from top) Stratis Landscape Architects (first place), Riley Cooper Landscae Design and Horticulture (second place), Paul Pritchard Landscapes (third place).



Owned by Daniel Althaus, Althaus Landscape Designs are passionate about working closely with their clients to create a space that is unique and reflects who they are as well as their individual needs.

Daniel and the team at Althaus Landscape Designs are excited to be showcasing their “Mother Ocean” design at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden show this year.

Mother Ocean is a garden that transcends traditional landscaping, symbolising a profound shift in our approach to gardening and our connection with the natural world. This visionary garden encourages us to depart from the rigid, man-made designs that have long dominated our landscapes and instead embrace a more naturalistic aesthetic that promotes environmental well-being.

Daniel is thrilled to be showcasing his work at MIFGS 2024.

“It's an incredible opportunity to showcase a snapshot of what Althaus Landscape Designs is capable of as a design business. It allows me to be completely free and creative, not unlike a painting in an art gallery.”

Craig and his team at Smart Landscapes are excited to be a finalist in the Boutique Gardens competition this year with their design of “Coastal Waves.”

Congratulations to Alistair Kirkpatrick and Elliot Summers from Stratis Landscape Architects for taking out the coveted first place prize in the Landscaping Victoria Master Landscapers Boutique Gardens Competition at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show! Congratulations also goes to build crew Better Landscapes for bringing the vision to life.

As a past finalist in the Boutique Garden competition Alistair has returned in 2023 alongside Elliot with another innovative boundary-pushing design, Karrikin Garden.

Their concept explored the regeneration and rejuvenation that fire can bring to the Australian landscape and celebrates a garden that derives its form from the rhythms and systems of our dynamic landscape.


'Slant' by Riley Cooper Landscape Design & Horticulture was awarded second place in the Boutique Garden Competition for 2023.

Inspired by the undulating hills of where the Otways meets the western stony rises, 'Slant' looks at how we live within a sloping site without an overuse of traditional hardscape intervention.

The vibrant planting palette offers a variety of texture, foliage and flower, and creates a dynamic wilderness that gives year-long interest to the garden. Often gardens are designed to control and tame, however this garden is designed to complement itself in its wild, untamed structure.

Congratulations Riley and the team at Bays Edge Landscapes for executing the build on Riley's vision.

'Tectonic Fluidity' by Paul Pritchard Landscapes took out third place in the Boutique Gardens Competition and was constructed by the team at Adam Hompas Landscapes who executed Paul's vision with exceptional detail.

'Tectonic Fluidity' represents an exercise in tectonic fluidity and meditation, an opportunity to expand a small area through the use of varying levels, textures & movement. Sharp angles are displayed yet one is able to move seamlessly throughout the dynamic garden.

The design employs line, shadow and form as tools to expand the perception of space, whilst using the flora and water to bind a sense of tranquility and freedom.



The 2023 Victorian Landscape Awards, sponsored by Apprenticeships Victoria, were pleased to acknowledge two talented recipients with the Appentice of the Year award.

He demonstrates a clear ability to think independently and take charge of site setout processes and can work from a landscape plan and interpret engineering and architectural drawings.
