The natural greenery theme in Lyn and Trevor Henthorn’s garden has earnt them the Tidy Towns Garden of the Month award for April.
Their structured garden — filled with a variety of ferns including conifers, bottle brush, daisies and abelias — caught the eye of this month’s Tidy Towns judges.
Mrs Henthorn said they have been working on the garden since moving to the home 13 years ago.
‘‘We work as a team and my kids have bought gardening tools for us to maintain it all,’’ she said.
‘‘I’m not a huge fan of flowery plants, I like the greener styles and keeping it neat.’’
Tidy Towns member Joan McCalman said the Henthorn garden was always ‘‘very pleasing to the eye’’.
‘‘With all of the green shades, it looks so cool on a hot day,’’ she said.
‘‘It can be viewed nicely by people driving past. It’s just a lovely oasis.’’
The Henthorns received a Tidy Towns certificate and $20 Mitre 10 voucher in recognition of their award.
