Grow Your Own and Landscaping - Perth

This phased Perth project involved re-designing and landscaping both the front and rear of the property.

Phase 1

Our remit was to re-design the rear garden, incorporating a large vegetable garden for our keen growers.

Initially we removed the existing wall and deck area at the rear of the property. The area was excavated and brick retaining wall built with steps to retain the upper level using old mill facing brick. The steps were laid with sandstone paving. A large patio area was created and semi circular back door steps to access the patio doors.

The upper level was laid with 20 mm quartz gravel and a sandstone path formed leading through an arch to the vegetable garden. Trellis fencing was erected creating a screen dividing the different areas of the garden and a green house base was also constructed.

The vegetable garden consisted of 4 large raised sleeper beds for ease of planting and harvesting with connecting paths creating easy access. The area was bordered by existing hedging providing some screening and privacy.

Phase 1 Duration 5 weeks

Phase 2

Our customer invited us to undertake a further project to replace the existing gravel driveway with mono block paving.

The existing area was cleared and excavated in preparation for the new driveway. The driveway was laid using driveline 50 burnt ochre and bracken mix with a charcoal block edge producing a lovely mix of colours.

A new front door step was also created in keeping with the new driveway.

The existing lawn was removed and replaced with a gravel area and bark border ready for planting.

Phase 2 Duration 3 Weeks

Completed Project

Both projects reflected the individual needs of the customer.

Phase one created an attractive screened area with raised planters for growing vegetables and easy access between the beds. 

Phase two created the smart front driveway which tied in beautifully with the traditional property.
