Addressing the heat!

Hawthorn project completed October 2018.  Design, plantscaping and maintenance completed by Inspiring Landscape Solutions.

Project Brief:

  • 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”!!

Project loves:

  • 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!
