Garden Design

Designing a garden to suit your needs can add significant value to both your home and your lifestyle.  As with anything, starting with a plan is essential.  We recommend that you take time to write down all the things that you do outdoors and make specific plans for each activity.  Consider the following;

  • Entertaining Areas
  • Relaxation Areas
  • Children's Play Areas
  • Animals and their needs
  • Clothes Lines
  • Vegetable gardens
  • Citrus Trees

The garden structure is the first area that needs planning

  • Hard Landscaping.  This includes decks, paved areas, pathways and the like
  • Soft Landscaping.  This is the structure of the garden and includes soils, screenings and sands

From here services have to be planned and installed

  • Irrigation & Sprinkler Systems
  • Water Capture (rainwater tanks)
  • Taps
  • Power outlets to entertainment areas

Finally the selection of plants & ground coverings (lawn) can happen.  Gardens come in an almost infinite number of styles, and the choice of plants will greatly influence not only the look, but the maintenance and water requirements.  Some things to consider include:

  • Native plants vs Introduced
  • Indiginous species (local to the area)
  • Flowers
  • Foliage
  • Scent
