Addressing the heat!
Hawthorn project completed October 2018. Design, plantscaping and maintenance completed by Inspiring Landscape Solutions.
- excessive heat in both the front and rear courtyards where it can get up to 42 degrees or more in summer;
- solutions for a hardy and low maintenance planting palette;
- solution to drainage in rear courtyard;
- solution for pests attacking the existing citrus trees;
- improve overall aesthetics and feel;
- advice on material choice for an updated look; and
- “have a little fun”!!
- incorporation of the client’s love of art and colour and patterns;
- the planting and material palette creating inviting spaces;
- wide use of materials, fun textures and colours;
- paving which remains cool on the feet in the rear courtyard;
- improving soil health and irrigation needs;
- solution to the pest problem!!; and
- the amazing fence screening which lifts the space up further!
(Project scope expanded to rehaul the front steppage – ETA end of March 2019)
Totally love the results so far at the front. So looking forward to the work starting on the rear courtyard based on the design skills that Parveen has been able to bring. Definitely worth getting the advice rather than going with what I know.
