Tips on Landscaping Adelaide Southern Suburbs
Landscaping Adelaide gardens requires careful preparation of the base before laying pavers or building a retaining wall. Below the top soil is often rock and clay, which in Adelaide southern suburbs can be highly ‘reactive’, moving as it swells with water during Winter or shrinks when it dries out during Summer. If the base is not properly prepared and compacted with quarry rubble (100mm-200mm), there is a significant chance the pavers or retaining wall will move or crack, resulting in costly repairs.
Base preparation is where quotes often differ in price. Some landscaping companies will lay artificial grass and pavers on sand or gravel, which will not be stable enough to hold after a heavy rain.
