Site Assessment

The first, and most basic service we offer is a site assessment. We’ll come to your property and examine it the soil, any slope, look for drainage problems, and take into account the shape of the block, positioning of buildings, site challenges, and sight lines – what can you see? What do you want people on the outside to see? Then we’ll talk to you and determine how to create the kind space you will enjoy. The key to this is to determine how can we add value.

Is you heart set on specific plants, pavers, or even raised beds for vegetables?

Hardscaping Options

Hardscaping is the hard stuff in your yard: think concrete, bricks, paving, retaining walls, water features etc. It’s good practice to hardscape first since this usually involve construction, which can compact your soil or damage turf and plantings. Hardscaping often provides boundaries and structure for you landscape. It als reduces potential erosion and keeps the ground in tact.

Plant Choices

Also known as softscaping, the choice of plants for your garden involves not only aesthetics but also function such as providing a screen, creating a feature, blocking unwanted views, or stabilizing a soil bank. Of course, your choices are often constrained by Ballarat’s climate, planting position, amount of sun and soil type. We can not only help with your plant selection, we can source and supply them for you.

Outdoor Living Space Design

We can help work out your outdoor living area requirements. How would a patio or outdoor room fit? Perhaps you’re after a pool for the kids? What about an attractive deck area? Do you love to entertain around a meal? The solution could be a fire pit, outdoor kitchen, pizza oven or bbq area. Finally, how about some lighting for safety and to create that perfect ambiance?

Irrigation and Drainage

An effective watering system is a crucial feature of your landscape. Drip systems, sprinkler systems, custom irrigation systems – we’re experts in them all and can recommend the best solution for your property.

Similarly drainage must be considered – after all, too much water can be just as bad as too little.
