Mundaring - February 2012

Think Green Landscapes
This large garden
needed some functionality and pathways to access throughout. The
client here often works from home too, with his office overlooking
the rear garden.
battered banks around the house were replaced with low limestone
terraces to match with the limestone look of the house and make this
area able to be gardened efficiently. We were also able to reuse all
the recovered stone in low garden walls throughout the garden.
Compacted road-gravel forms the paths that snake throughout the
garden make access easy for walking or by wheelbarrow.
A jarrah timber deck with shadesail
provides a great place to sit and entertain in the garden, and the
shadesail gives some protection from hot midday sun.
The planting includes many flowering native trees and shrubs as well
as many deciduous trees to give some real seasonality with Autumn
colour and seasonal flowering.
