Our work speaks for itself
After the back of house was renovated, we needed to create a level area out the back with low maintenance gardens. Beautiful basalt pavers were laid with sandstone block edging, and a raised garden bed from recycled railway sleepers. Chinese Star Jasmine and Ophiopogon were planted in the narrow side passage, with a feature Crabapple tree out the back.
After a full reno of a beautiful old home, there was nothing left in the backyard. We created raised beds using recycled railway sleeprs, and paved with a combination of original bricks from the house and fresh 600 X 600 cement pavers. The gardens were planted out with Buxus, Camellias and a bed of Hydrangeas, and evenly spaced Pear trees along the rear fence.
This front garden was originally a mass of large grasses, New Zealand Flax and weeds. We cleared the area, enriched the soil, laid steel edging to define the different beds, then spread river stone and mulch. The gardens were planted with succulents, grasses and low shrubs, and a fullt automeated irrigation system installed. For privacy, we created a hanging basket frame using hardwood cemented into the soil, and hung a dozen baskets planted with mixed hangers.
A great garden renovation here including new paving, garden beds and a built-in BBQ. Tumbled limestone pavers were laid, and surrounding garden beds planted with low maintenance, dog-friendly plants. A new table setting and clothesline make the yard fully practical.
There was one tree in this garden when we arrived, so our work was cut out for us! This stunning restored federation home needed a garden to match, that was also a great space for the young kids to run around one. We used simple planting, straight lines and neat rows to create a formal garden with style. Buxus japonica, Lillypillys, Gardenias and Camellias were planted, lined by brick edging, and all irrigated. Sir Walter buffalo lawn was laid, and we used a charcoal 400mm X 400mm paver.
Originally an overgrown mix of plants and weeds, this yard was cleared and the soil enriched. Structure was added to the garden by the use of 2 large ceramic pots, a water bowl and planting clumps of flowering shrubs. The end result is a colourful, vibrant garden, all irrigated on an automated timer.
After finishing the neighbouring property, we moved next door to complete full construction of this back yard after the house renovation. A raised garden bed was clad in stackstone, and tumbled limestone pavers laid. New drainage was installed, and the gardens planted with a mass of tropical foliage including Walking Iris, Gingers, Bromeliads and Philodendrons. We placed existing pots throughout the yard, and added an advanced Magnolia to provide screening and shade.
The focus of this job was to create a neat, low-maintenance, kid-friendly back yard.The first step was to create a paved area at the side door, to house the bins and recycling. A new clothes line was added, as well as a raised vegetable and herb garden against the house. Beyond this, new turf was laid in the back yard, and I also planted out the gardens with a selection of tropical plants with contrasting colours and foliage. A new irrigation system waters all gardens.
An empty site at the start of the job, soil was craned in to create a level area at the back of the house. Treated timber edges were laid, as well as a small sandstone wall and an irrigation system under the lawn and through the gardens. Soft-leaf buffalo was laid and gardens were planted out with hedging shrubs to produce a formal, low maintenance yard.
Pool construction destroyed this backyard, so we were called in to tie the garden and new pool together, once construction had finished. The pavers were relaid, rubble was removed, and we put in new buffalo lawn. The gardens were planted out and mulched, and then the pool was ready to go!
Initially this yard was a concrete slab surrounded by 8 metre high bamboo. The clients wanted lawn, a mixture of shrubs and trees, and a usable paved area for entertaining. The bamboo and the concrete slab removed. Excavation left the area with 2 levels, ready for turf and pavers.
The aim of this job was to connect the new deck to the existing paved area, and then add in planter boxes with new trees. Treated timber sleepers were used to create the raised garden bed, and then a new paved area with additional drainage was put in. Hardy plants were a requirement, as well as something would would screen off a neighbouring building. At completion, the yard was once again useable and a level space for entertaining.
This job was one of toughest! We transformed a sloping, muddy backyard into a usable lawn area. We terraced the yard with recycled railway sleepers, adding new drainage and steps. Loads of soil was brought in, the area levelled, and then 'Sir Walter' buffalo turf.
