Let’s talk upkeep. Many of them are plenty of ongoing work unless you’ve got your own gardener. How do they look after 6 mths for ‘real people’?

Yes they do require 'upkeep'. They are after all gardens. You need to first decide about the amount of care that can be either given by you or by paid maintenance professionals. Be practical and objective.

On another note, Aussie gardens are just getting lovelier by the day!
