GARDENING is all about creativity for Roy Brunner.

"I love the creating and designing of it all," he said.

"I look at it and think, oh, that's what I'll do next."

Mr Brunner opened his garden Serendipity in Geddes St to the public this weekend.

He said he didn't spend too much time tidying it up because it was not a very high maintenance garden.

"I don't spend too much time working in it," he said.

"I spend most of the time just clipping. If I'm walking around having a beer and I see something that needs trimming, I'll just grab my scissors from my pocket and fix it up."

The design has changed much over the 10 years Mr Brunner, who is a landscaper and gardener by trade, has been seriously working in the garden.

"I just love working in the garden," he said. "But I wouldn't build gardens like mine for people."

The garden today includes 28 conifer spruces, nine maple trees and standards and 30 more standard/grafted plants, holly and mulberry, magnolias and camellias.

The Moreton Garden at 4 Aylmer Court, Prince Henry Heights is also open this weekend.
