Glovers on Merrifield – Castlemaine

“A bush setting transformed.”


Situated on the very edge of town in a natural bush setting Kay and Len Glover have transformed a neglected vineyard into a lush sward of lawn fringed by more than seventy Cleveland Select pears, conifers and extensive native plantings.

The rear of the property has been made ready for more grass and meadow to be seeded. The unforgiving soil has been dug, turned and tilled to enable the planting of hundreds of native plants in and around the large, existing gum trees, attracting native birds and other fauna.
