Alexandria Cafe

The planting design for this iconic new café is centred around productivity. Extensive herb and vegetable gardens provide fresh food to the café whilst surrounding customers with the sights and smells of a working farm. As an accompaniment to the produce, formal plantings of Ornamental Pear trees and Magnolias provide impact and fit well with the scale of the space. In a highly urbanized setting this planting scheme creates a welcome oasis of greenery. (Photography by Leigh Jackson.)
