Want your garden looking its best for a special occasion like a party or wedding, or because you’re getting the house ready to sell?
Love to give your garden a spruce up, but want to keep your costs low?
Fancy a vegie patch, or just tired of what you see out of your windows?
Whatever it is you want, a Green Samurai garden makeover could be just what you need.
Something as simple as the addition of a screen, a neatly bordered garden bed or a few feature plants can transform the appearance of your garden.
We’ve got the ideas and know-how to deliver a result you’ll be happy with. At a price you can afford.
Adding a garden bed, or giving an existing bed a facelift, can do wonders to improve the curb appeal of your home.
- We can help you choose the right plants, whether it’s starting from scratch, putting in a garden border or adding new plants to suit what’s already there.
- We use fresh, high-quality soil in garden beds to avoid contamination with weeds and to maximise healthy growth of your new and existing plants.
- We fertilise and mulch the bed to ensure your plants are well nourished and to minimise water wastage.
There’s little in life more satisfying than walking out into your garden and picking fresh, ripe food you’ve grown yourself.
But if setting up a vegie garden is a bit more work than you have the time, energy or interest for, let us take care of the hard part.
A low-maintenance, high-yield vegie garden is much easier to have and maintain than you might think. And with the right set up and professional advice, your household could be enjoying beautiful home-grown food next season.
There are many ways to grow food at home, with options to:
- Build raised beds
- Convert existing in-ground beds
- Create potted or vertical gardens on a balcony or in a courtyard
There’s a home-grown food option available to suit every lifestyle.
We can help with as much or as little of the setup process as you like. We can just set up the beds so that you can have the satisfaction of planting yourself. Or, if you’d prefer home-grown food with minimal effort, we can take care of the whole process for you right through to planting and mulching. It’s really up to you.
We use companion planting to naturally prevent pest and disease, and to maximise yield. If you’d prefer to plant yourself, we can offer companion planting advice or even a custom planting plan on request.
Edible gardens as part of ornamental gardens
An edible garden doesn’t have to be the traditional, rustic, hessian-and-raw-timber-riddled vegie garden that first comes to mind for most of us.
Ornamental or even formal gardens can have edible plants incorporated into them to achieve a wonderful fusion of ornamental beauty and sustainable practicality.
Imagine herb and berry hedges, feature fruit trees, herb garden borders or ground covers, vegetables beautifully arranged throughout the flower beds, sleek, painted raised beds … the possibilities are endless.
Screens and trellises
If you feel your neighbours can see right into your backyard, or passers-by are getting a great view of your lounge room, a privacy screen may be the answer.
A screen or trellis can also be a great feature to add some character to your garden, or to divide or add definition to a space.
Many options are available to suit your style and budget. Just tell us the problem and we’ll come up with some ideas for a solution that’s right for you.
Has your lawn seen better days?
Take your yard from tired and prickly to lush and inviting.
Re-sowing your lawn (in autumn or winter) is an affordable option. And watching your new lawn sprout and grow can be very satisfying, if you have the patience.
If it’s instant visual impact you’re after, then laying new turf will certainly satisfy.
With either choice, the area is best not walked on for 6-8 weeks to allow the new grass to establish. But the results are worth the wait.
