Fleming’s Nurseries has joined forces with developer Goldfields on its Winterfield project, to deliver landscaping across the entire development.

The nursery and landscape business will provide a selection of front garden designs that are to be included in the purchase of an allotment at the master-planned development.

There are six designs purchasers can choose from – all designed by Fleming’s at the direction of horticulturalist Wes Fleming.

Fleming has led the landscape plan for Winterfield (pictured) which will see a focus on trees and plants across the new community. He is previously known for his work with nine winning gardens at the Chelsea Flower Show in London.

“We hope to deliver outdoor spaces that enhance the beauty of Ballarat – rich in its flora and fauna and open green space,” Fleming said of the collaboration.

“Not only will purchasers receive a free front garden, they can also relish in the area’s natural surrounds and relaxed environment – something we worked hard to create and that will complement the Winterfield lifestyle.”

The development is also set to landscape 14 hectares of gardens and open green space, including the re-invigoration of the area’s existing creek to create multiple parks, wetlands and playgrounds.

Goldfields’ managing director, Marco Gattino, confirmed that Winterfield’s partnership with Fleming was centred on delivering a healthy lifestyle for all its residents.

“We wanted to make sure residents could enjoy their surroundings – both inside their home and when they are out in the community, which is why the landscaping has been a major focus from the outset,” Gattino explained.

“The five neighbourhoods within Winterfield will each have a distinguishing signature tree, such as the Golden Rain Tree and the Montpellier, adding to the aesthetic,” he said.

“Wes Fleming’s approach to Winterfield delivers something fresh to the market - it’s unlike any other development in Australia – it really does set a new benchmark for master-planned communities.”

Winterfield is currently selling blocks in Stage One with lot sizes ranging from 544sqm to 615sqm, and prices from $125,000.
