bush garden

description

This low maintenance bush garden was design and constructed by Ocean Road Landscaping.  The design brief was for a natural bush garden to seamlessly blend in with the existing Messmate stringybarks (Eucalyptus obliqua)on site.  This was a tricky planting plan, as the trees suck so much moisture out of the soil although the garden doesn’t show this with the success of the plants. With a large north facing front yard that is set back from the street, this garden allows you to enjoy a slow meander to the front door.  The plants are attractive to butterflies and birds and low on water usage.  This property is situated 500 meters from the Great Otway National Park, so fits well within its environment.

Beach landscape

Description

This superb beach landscape is a large seaside garden using a good mix of indigenous plants abutting the sand dunes in Ocean Grove.  This garden was an environmentally sensitive project, with the removal of many weeds that had choked the garden prior to construction, almost bringing it back to a clean slate.  A sweeping lawn and hundreds of indigenous and native plants have been planted on this site, that has direct access to Ocean Grove beach.

Clipped hedges have been formed around the pool, and are also at the bottom of the garden to lead you through he beach landscape on a journey to the beach. Use of recycled materials, permeable surfaces and irrigation systems along with low maintenance plantings make for a sustainable garden.

This garden was Finalist at the Landscape Victoria Awards as a sustainable garden.
