Climate & Growing Conditions

The Blacktown Council area is located in Sydney's west. The area has slightly warmer nights and more rainfall than that of the more western areas such as Camden, Penrith and Richmond. The average annual rainfall in the Blacktown area is around 916mm, with most of that total falling between January and March. Storms are common in summer and account for a substantial amount of the annual total. These storms are usually absent in winter and rainfall is therefore reduced as a result. Temperature extremes vary from 41 deg in summer to -4 overnight in winter. Frost will occur a few times in the middle of winter but it is usually light when it does occur.

Plants should be selected from Zone 3 and Zone 4 when planning your garden.

Garden & Landscape Design DA Requirements

If you are building a new home in Marsden Park, Schofields, Elara Estate, Altrove Estate or Stonecutters Ridge Estate you are required to submit a landscape plan as part of your submission to developer/council. Need help? Please contact us at Landscape Designs Sydney for more information or for a free landscape design quote.
