Maintenance The first three photos in the row above are the same garden. Photos two and three show what eighteen months of growth look like. We visit this garden about once a season for a whole day or two to perform a major maintenance. Tasks like pruning, fertilising, attending to the lawn (weed and feed), oil decks, mulching, replacing plants. We love returning, our clients take good care their outdoor space between our visits, and pretty much gave us a free reign.
Sloping gardens; are great as they add character and an extra dimension to any garden. If your front garden slopes - don't pretend it doesn't and landscape it as if it's flat. It just won't look quite right. Work with the slope - having a rolling lawn or retain it using well placed garden rock or mud stone. Install steps - dont slope a front path, unless of course chair access is a requirement. Alternatively sleepers or rendered block work looks great too. Consider setting back a retianing wall and having a narrow garden bed in front. It will soften the whole look especially if you have a footpath in front.
Synthetic turf has come a long way due to an ever increasing demand. Due to our ten year drought industry came up with some great product and are continuing to develop realistic looking product. Even with the skies opening up synthetic turf has some great advantage still - like no mowing! Beware though weeds will still fly in and lodge occasionally. Michelle Sadler Landscape Designs believe if you're going to do a job do it right and it begins with quality product. Try to avoid the cheaper ones. It may cost a little more but you won't be dissapointed. Your friends and family won't believe their eyes or their feet.
