This was by far the largest task we had undertaken to date. This beautiful circa 1900 Blackwood icon had been beautifully renovated on the inside and the new owners wanted a garden to reflect the modern garden transformation whilst not losing the heritage and connection with the facade.
The block was sloping which made the project difficult, along with unearthing over a century of artefacts and buried rubbish made this design full of surprises. Retaining walls were required to hold the large amount of soil excavated to create a large lawn and centre piece area at the front while each side garden needed to respect its aspect position, whilst create a more formal pattern to match the era of the house. Frost and plant selection was also carefully considered due to the Adelaide Hills climate. Lighting and irrigation capped off a beautiful and largely maintenance free front and side gardens.
