After working with these clients on a previous project in Canyonleigh, they called us back when they built a new home on a higher point of their property.
The soil and aspect of this site is very unforgiving, and there is a shortage of water – also, the clients (who love colour) have little time for maintenance. Therefore, we used a simple, low-maintenance plant selection with a mix of exotics and natives, with fairly detailed soil preparation.
There is a retaining wall only 2m from the front verandah and very shallow soil, so we installed and Adjuga lawn for hardiness and colour.
We lined the driveway with lemon scented gums and did bulk colour plantings at the gate to really grab the eye on the country road.
