So as the client could walk around her front area, granitic paths offered ease of access. Steel edging, sandstone boulders and three medium-sized trees became the feature of this garden design: Banksia ericifolia, Acacia ‘Emerald Curl’ and Hakea laurina. Grevillea, Eremophila, Angiozanthus, Leptospermum complimented the texture and colour of the trees while the tuft grasses and sprawling ground covers soften the picture.
