Semi Formal Low Maintenance Residential Landscaping With Feature Retaining Walls.
Clients located at Wynn Vale wanted a semi-formal, low maintenance landscape design for their backyard, featuring split level retaining walls with steps up to a paved platform, artificial grass with stepping stones extending through to a pebble area, surrounded by retained garden beds with plants to be watered by drip irrigation system.
Details of this residential landscaping project at Wynn Vale:
- Excavation and removal of 20 tonne of moss rocks, plus 40 tonne of soil.
- For the concrete block retaining wall, almond coloured Boral Heathstone® concrete blocks were used with matching bullnose coping.
- An ag-pipe drainage system was installed behind all retaining walls to handle water drainage.
- Boral Promenade® pavers, 300mm x 300mm with a border using 240mm x 120mm Boral Classicpave® were laid.
- Our ‘Burnside’ artificial grass was laid on a compacted quarry rubble/sand base.
- Stepping stones using Quantumstone pavers; 800mm x 400mm, were laid on a mortar base through the artificial grass.
- The Quantumstone pavers were used again as a path through the landscaping pebbles by the rear gate.
- Garden beds were prepared with organic loam and planted out before an organic water saving mulch was added.
- A drip irrigation system was installed for low maintenance watering.
- Garden path lights and spot lights enhance the garden living use at night.
Landscaping Project Tips:
Garden beds along the fence line were planted out with Photinia Robina’s to create a future hedge/screen. The garden beds within the feature retaing wall were planted out with Buxus Coreana. Lomandra and Cordyline ‘Red Stars’ border the stepping stones and pebble area by the gate.
