Garden Design Series with Hugh Main

Hugh’s understanding of gardens that thrive in diverse conditions was established early. 

Born on a working farm near Glen Innes in north-west New South Wales, he helped in the garden, bordered by paddocks and ghost gums. He studied which plants survived and flourished, and which didn’t. After co-founding Spirit Level over a decade ago, Hugh has grown his vision to create, build and care for gardens that are in touch with their natural settings. When not transforming other people’s gardens he can be found taming the bush around his farmhouse. 
Due to the popularity of the Garden Design Series, now in its fifth year, you need to book early to secure your spot. Ticket includes drinks and canapés on arrival.
