Gardens add Value

Property investment is not always the "set and forget" dream that we wish it could be, especially when there is land involved.

We work alongside individuals and real estate agencies to spruce up properties ready for sale or rental, and offer ongoing maintenance.

Get in touch for an obligation free meeting. It would be our pleasure to discuss your garden needs.

SUSTAINABLE FRONT GARDEN

We like to appreciate the heritage of an area and can build a garden that works with the design aesthetic of the house. This stunning mid-century blonde brick in Highett has been brought to life with a dry garden, complete with coloured paths, succulent planting, a new driveway and feature boulders.

CUSTOM BUILD FEATURES

These lovely clients like to sit in their garden and enjoy their own tranquility. We created a raised custom build seating area with fire pit, laid new artificial turf and finished the garden beds with asymmetrical redgum edges.

COLOURFUL BEACHSIDE HIDEAWAY

Created as a personal labour of love, this once dowdy backyard on the Mornington Peninsula is now a sub-tropical wonderland that is low maintenance and perfect for parties, BBQs, lazing around and inquisitive kids.
