Greg Howlett was proud to show off his garden as part of the Longford Blooms event being held this weekend.
The event includes 13 different gardens open to the public, two of which have never been seen before.
Mr Howlett has been part of Longford Blooms for about five years now.
"[The upkeep of the garden] is pretty intense, but it's a labour of love, so it doesn't matter," he said.
"Gardening is exercise and it's wonderful to share it with people. It's a very positive experience."
Mr Howlett grew up with gardens and found his passion for gardening developed over time.
"I was always interested. You just accumulate the knowledge over the years and learn from friends and swap information with people," he said.
"I used to read all the garden magazines, watch the garden shows ... and you just learn from all that."
The garden was full of a variety of flowers and plants, as well as water features and sculptures.
When Mr Howlett first purchased the house and garden, it was smaller and more formal, but he filled in the gaps and turned away from the formal structure in favour of random planting.
Longford Blooms will be back on Sunday from 10am-4pm. To head along, visit the Village Green at Longford where you pay to get a wristband and map for the event.
The event is also hosting a mask-wearing competition for those wanting to win a Bunnings voucher.
