A retaining wall can add beautiful definition to a garden, and managing a garden on a sloped block is always easier with levelled tiers.
We build sturdy, strong retaining walls. Our timber walls are always reinforced with concreted uprights on the outside of the wall to prevent the wall buckling outward over time.
Retaining walls are usually installed for practical reasons, but while you’re at it you can also make an attractive feature or character piece for your garden:
- The wall can be capped to create a ledge to sit on while you garden or sip your afternoon tea (or something stronger).
- Benches can be built in to provide seating for entertaining or just enjoying the sun.
- Built-in planters can give some fantastic character to the space.
We love an opportunity to get creative with landscape designs. Give us a call and we can discuss the possibilities for your space and budget, and what you’re hoping for in your garden.
Our preferred material for retaining walls is treated pine as it’s strong and versatile, and can be clad, stained or painted to suit any style. We can work with other materials, so let us know your preferences and we can discuss it when we come to give you a quote.
Gravel parking areas
If you have trouble accommodating the cars of your visitors or even just the members of your household, gravelling a portion of your yard could be a great solution.
Gravelling is significantly cheaper than paving, and blends with the aesthetics of a garden far more easily than concrete.
When laid well, gravel only requires regular weed spraying to be a long-lasting — not to mention, budget-conscious — solution to parking woes.
Are the planted areas of your garden looking a little untidy or haphazard?
Does one planted area just kind of bleed into the next?
Something as simple as the addition of garden borders can do wonders to transform a garden that looks a bit all over the place … or worse, not there at all!
Borders throughout a garden can do a lot to tie spaces together and create a theme or sense of continuity from one end of the garden to another.
Rocks, pavers, sleepers, coppers logs, even planted herbaceous borders — the possibilities are really only limited by your imagination.
What better way is there to give your home the wow factor than with a unique outdoor feature?
Picture this …
A specially designed feature garden bed showcasing the wonderful colours and form of nature.
A beautifully lit pond providing the soothing trickle of running water by day, and a stunning visual feature by night.
A custom-designed bench carefully positioned to take advantage of your favourite view within or from your garden.
Built-in benches and seating to accommodate your friends and family when you celebrate together.
Whatever you have in mind, we can help create something special for your home.
