The impact of a well designed front entrance

A well designed front entrance of a home can have a major impact, not only aesthetically but also financially when it comes to resale. We recently completed the landscaping at our Ivanhoe project where there was an existing front wall which we wanted to utilize in the design but also find a way to give […]

Our Harkaway Pool

Last week we completed our Harkaway pool and landscape, designed by Roger Brown of Focal Point Garden Design. It was the clients dream to have the project completed for her 50th birthday party, which probably wasn’t the most realistic but we got there in the end. . This 14×6 metre pool was tiled in a […]

The clients had purchased around half an acre of additional land next door which was at the […]

Preparing your garden for winter

It’s that time of year again, deciduous trees are showing off their beautiful colours in our gardens and throughout the streets. Leaves are falling onto the ground and telling us that winter is now upon us. Many people dread the outcome that winter has on their gardens where trees are left bare, leaves build up […]

Courtyards and Small Gardens

Some of our favourite projects we have built have often been the smaller ones.

Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show 2016 – Award Winning Garden

Around a year ago, Georgia Harper from GHLD came to us with a design that she had in mind for MIFGS 2016 called OHANA. We instantly wanted in and were excited to work in collaboration with Georgia as it was going to be a space that was not only creative and beautiful but also practical. […]
