Sometimes on a building project, you find yourself with fiddly little "dead spots", that are a bit of a pain to try and do anything with. On this build site, the owners were in that exact position.
There was a long, narrow gap between the home and the shed, that needed a bit of a make over, without blowing a huge stack of cash on product. As you can see, it was a bit of a scene of devastation! Thanks to Wayne Johnstone of Bushlandscaping, a plan to create a little tropical oasis here came together in just two days!
Wayne chose a combination of our Black Pebble and Adbri pavers to lay on top of the bare dirt area, in a design that bridges the buildings with each other, as well as the larger paved area at the front of the house. He then selected tropical plantings and a laser cut screen to dress the area and give it privacy and definition.
As you can see, the design itself is quite simple, but the product has been meticulously laid, giving the area a very upmarket look. Wayne selected materials that fit with the owner's outdoor furniture, fittings and the natural surrounds.
With a clever selection of plantings and product, any tricky spot in your garden can be transformed into something special.
It seems that it is impossible to escape the daily drama unfolding around the coronavirus. Everyone is talking about it, and it is something we all must play our part in preventing the spread of, as much as we can. We have decided to look at the situation in a different, more positive way.
Water runoff is rain that does not soak into the ground where it falls. It is most concerning if the water is pooling around the foundations of your buildings, as it can cause serious structural damage over time. There are a few simple things you can do to reduce water runoff on your property, using mulch, pavers and gravel.
Don't let the rain put you off tidying up your garden. In fact, rainy weather is the best weather in which to weed and mulch. This is a little case study of a customer's weekend gardening project, and shows how much you can achieve in a day with the right products.
