Three large Syzygium trees overshadowed the front garden creating a canopy of deep shade. It was impossible to keep turf alive, and most of the existing plants struggled, and for garden lovers, this was a nightmare.

Through removing two of the older, unhealthy trees, allowed more sunlight onto the garden creating an extensive list of plants to choose from.

A simple timber retaining wall was built, and a herringbone pattern, red brick paving path was laid to direct visitors to the front door.

A combination of deciduous trees was selected for their incredible and beautiful autumn leaf colour and spring flower display.

Evergreen Magnolias, Osmanthus and a selection of Herbaceous perennials with pretty flowering ground covers complemented this period home. Laying buffalo turf species was the final stage in creating this now healthy lively garden.
