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.
We’ve had some much needed rain, and it is a very good time to get in to those garden beds, pull out the weeds, and top up the beds with a nice thick blanket of mulch. There are lots of different mulches to choose from and we have put together a quick run down of our top 5 tree mulches to give you an idea of some of what types of applications they suit best.
At the moment, we have 20kg bags of the very popular Kashmiri pebbles in stock and they represent a fantastic way to get your smaller landscaping projects done quickly and with style.
We are halfway to November already and it's newsletter time again. We have specials on top dress soil to give your lawn some love, and hardwood mulch. We also have tips to grow veggies in pots, a yummy garlic butter recipe and we introduce our Trade Partner, Matt Lucas from Lucas Mob. Enjoy!
