With the size of blocks getting smaller, we are finding more people looking for smart landscaping designs to maximise their outdoor living space on the Mornington Peninsula. Our clients are designing their outdoor landscape to enhance their lives and personal interests, whilst really thinking about what landscape design would suit them best.
We recently built a new picket fence for a young family in Mt Eliza on the Mornington Peninsula. With two young girls who love to play outdoors in the fresh air, this young family needed a fencing solution. Their house was built on a corner block and their backyard was pretty much taken up by their outdoor deck. This mean't the girls trampoline was positioned on a grass area in their front yard. Like a lot of corner blocks, space is often wasted through the front yard.
This lovely family wanted to create a safe and secure area for their daughters to play and we did just that.
We built a 1.5 metre picket fence with capping, which complemented the existing picket fence that set the boundary of their property. A side gate was also installed to give easy access to their carport.
The family was delighted with their new picket fence and loved the privacy and security it gave to their family. The girls were also excited as having a new fence mean't that they could finally get the little dog they wanted for Christmas.
The family have chosen to paint the picket fence themselves and will be concreting their driveway in the near future. We wish them all the best!
We recently transformed a small backyard space that was over growing with weeds to a lovely low-maintenance courtyard landscape design for our clients in Mornington.
Our clients main objective was to have an outdoor space that was tidy and easy to maintain. This great space has good morning and afternoon sun, and the soil constitutes of about 200mm of top soil and below that is clay.
A wrap around raised garden bed was constructed then filled with river pebbles and drought tolerant plants that are easy to look after. The centre space was cleared and laid down with synthetic grass which is a great solution for a low-maintenance and beautiful lawn.
Our client was delighted with the end result and can't wait to start enjoying that great afternoon sun in his new courtyard.
