Our client in Dromana wanted a minimal and clean landscaping design solution for her new home build in Dromana on the Mornington Peninsula. She was after a beautiful lawn for her grandchildren to play and landscaping construction solutions that allowed her to plant her favourite plants and grow a strong and healthy vegetable patch. The goal of the makeover was to maintain the original contour of the land and provide an outdoor space to relax and engage in her gardening hobby.
A retained garden bed was constructed to allow our client to plant trees along her fence line and along her windows. The garden beds had old soil removed and were filled with healthy garden blended soil. Raised planter boxes were constructed using treated pine, then lined with plastic and filled with vegetable blend to support a strong and healthy vegetable garden. To allow a healthy and lush grass to grow we removed the old top soil which contained pollutants from the house build, and added 80-100ml of clean organic top soil for the grass. Eureka Kikuyu grass turf was laid from Strathayr.
At the front of the property a curved path was constructed from the deck to an entrance gate. Steel edging was using to shape the path and Australian hardwood sleepers were used for the steps. The path was laid with Bairnsdale topping, and Crazy Indian Sandstone Pavers were used for the steppers.
Our client is so happy with her green healthy lawn and her vegetable garden is growing beautifully. We are also providing a fortnightly lawn and garden maintenance program for her new landscaping to ensure that it's kept healthy and strong . Our client is delighted by her new outdoor space and loves getting outdoors and sharing it with her family and friends.
Our lovely clients in Cape Schanck on the Mornington Peninsula, had a round-a-bout in their front yard that had become overgrowth with stalky and dead plants. Their was a path design through-out this round-a-bout defined with timber edging, but the timber had rotted away and the path was in need of a make-over.
The goal was to restore the existing round-a-bout area using steel edging to create clean and strong borders, then filling the path with torquay white rock pebbles which had been used previously.
The clients wanted to keep the feature tree and plant a few extra olive trees in the garden too.
It took 3 people to bend the steel edging around the tree, which was then welded into place using steel pegs.
The clients loved the end result. What do you think?
Before Steel Edging
After Steel Edging
Steel Edging makes landscaping maintenance a breeze and gives this Balnarring Beach house an edge on the Mornington Peninsula.
We recently installed 127 metres of steel edging for our clients Balnarring Beach house on the Mornington Peninsula.
Although our clients did have a low-maintenance landscape design they found that over-time their bushes had slowly grown over their drive-way, their grass lines weren't looking as sharp and mulch easily moved onto their roads.
Our clients had natural edging throughout their property but wanted their landscaping back to how it was about 4 years ago.
With the construction of steel edging, having a great looking property has now become so much easier.
1. Makes mowing or wiper snipping easier.
2. Contains mulch and toppings from garden beds.
3. Gives you a border along which you can spray weeds and cut back trees.
Steel edging in your landscaping will make your outdoors look neat and clean = smiles all year round :)
