Diane Beddison’s private garden is a beautiful garden built around the existing mature trees and shrubs inherited from the former garden and complements the historic Victorian brick home it surrounds.
Mica Grange was also part of the Castlemaine Garden Festival. Much of the property is quite open, with good use made of existing rocks and uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside. The owner specialises in creating core-ten metal art work which is displayed in the garden.
