Ferntree Gully

Native lushness

[Webpage under construction!] Ferntree Gully staged project with scope expanded to encompass the front garden & nature strip areas eventually.  Front garden completed in Dec 2021.  Rear garden completed in Dec 2020.  Design and plantscaping completed by Inspiring Landscape Solutions.

Project Brief (front & rear garden):

  • rear – to create a usable outdoor entertaining area that merges with the garden;
  • rear – to ensure that the family’s caravan is able to be incorporated and has a permanent parking spot when it is housed within the property;
  • rear – wide area to allow the children to play various games/activities whilst keeping it aesthetically interesting and colourful;
  • front – native planting and incorporate/compliment build elements and colours;
  • front – street appeal;
  • family friendly; and
  • material advice and selection!

Project loves:

  • good backbones already in place to work with in the form of some established garden beds and large existing eucalypts;
  • the planting scheme as it is not only colourful and has a little bit of everything – modern, cottage, formal, topiary but it also has a few uncommon native and exotic plants!
  • use of cottage garden plants like roses, perennials that are higher in maintenance and the family were TOTALLY up for it!
  • use of different climbers in different areas – loving the effect as the garden slowly takes its shape over the years! and
  • DIY features like a built in BBQ area, shed, vertical garden etc that the lovely clients have put in for the family to enjoy their outdoors even more!!
