Complete Landscape Design For Back Garden at Salisbury Heights.
The brief for this landscape design was to retain an extreme sloping block with moss rocks, create access to the various levels created and build a play area for children to play; including a separate basketball area.
The pool area needed to be paved, frameless glass pool fencing was erected, retaining walls were built for the garden beds along the boundary and to provide a natural looking screen, psalms were planted in front of the fence and garage.
Features of this Back Garden Landscaping Project:
Excavators and our bobcat hire were used to bench out of the various levels and to place the moss rocks
Paving and edging was laid on a wet mortar base to ensure movement was not an issue over time,
joints were then grouted with a cementicious grout to ensure no weeds or loss of sand.
40mm blade synthetic grass was laid on 100mm of compacted quartzite rubble & 25mm of sand.
An automated drip irrigation system to all the garden areas was installed before laying mulch.
Play equipment and cubby house was installed on a soft sand & mulch base.
Two 5000L water tanks were installed on compacted rubble base,
Stormwater connected from shed, overflow from tanks & agricultural pipes behind retaining walls, with a conduit for future power to shed installed in the same trench.
Sandstone retaining walls and concrete slab retaining walls were built behind the shed.
Paving was laid around the pool and frameless glass pool fencing was installed around the pool.
The rear of the property was not usable due to the extreme nature of the sloping block, so retaining walls were built to create usable outdoor living areas.
For low maintenance, synthetic grass was laid and drip irrigation was installed to garden areas. The basketball area was texture-coated to provide a user-friendly surface for children.
