Native Australian Garden inspiration- In contrast to other parts of the garden, the planting at the front entrance is kept simple with two contrasting plants used - Salt Bush (Rhagodia spinescens) with its lovely silvery-grey against the darker grey of Coastal Rosemary (Westringa fruticosa). This simple planting is done for a reason - to highlight and focus a sculpture near the front entrance.
