Climate & Growing Conditions

The Upper Blue Mountains is truly a mountainous area by Australian standards. The terrain is dramatic, with sandstone cliffs a feature in some areas, deep valleys and large plateaus of land where most of the population lives. As your local Upper Blue Mountains landscape architects, we are passionate about making your garden thrive.

The Upper Blue Mountains area - for the purposes of this website - starts at Bullaburra and ends at Mount Victoria.

Its climate is cold according to Australian standards, so plants need to be able to deal with frost, snow and a short growing season. Winters are long and cold, while summers are short and mild.

Upper Blue Mountains rainfall averages at almost 1400mm per year which is very high. Plants that are suitable to this climate do very well. Temperature extremes range from 37 deg in the middle of summer to a freezing cold -8 deg overnight in the dead of winter.

Select plants featured on the Sydney Landscape Designers Plantfinder from Zone 1 & Zone 2. Some plants from Zone 3 will also cope with the climatic conditions of the Upper Blue Mountains, but consideration needs to be given to the plant's ability to cope with the cold winters experienced in these areas.

Garden & Landscape Design DA Requirements

All the same council conditions are applicable for the Upper Blue Mountains as are with the Lower Blue Mountains.

If you are going to construct a new development over 50m2 a landscape concept plan is required to be submitted to the council.

If you are building in an area that is classified as Living Conservation, Living Bushland Conservation or an Employment General zone then you will be required to submit a landscape plan as part with your submission. Contact us to find out more.
