It was an absolute delight for Pepo to be involved in the care and development of this historically significant site near Sydney’s Bronte Beach.

With its secret paths and expansive lawns, this two-acre garden epitomises a magical sanctuary full of surprises. Nestled amidst the greenery is the beautiful heritage-listed house built in 1845 by the owners, Robert and Georgiana Lowe. More recently, Leo Schofield, Myles Baldwin and others have developed the garden, introducing a universal plant palette.

Pepo was officially awarded the garden maintenance contract by Waverley Council in 2017 and finished up on this project in late 2022 after more than five years of loving care. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to continue the tradition of respectfully integrating plant life and thoughtful elements, preserving this inspiring landmark for years to come.
