It’s all the finer details which really bring a garden to life.

Front and centre in this garden is the cast iron fire pit which on our chilly Canberra evenings, along with quality lighting, extends our time enjoying the outdoors. The adorable cubby house has been a hit with the kids.

Being able to recycle the bush rock from another area of the garden to create a stone sitting wall around the fire, and a stair case for easy access, helps minimise on costs.

The hardwood chip mulch helps retain moisture and puts nutrients back into the soil to help your new (and exisiting) plants grow and thrive.

A well planned garden provides years of enjoyment. We look at the long term future of our gardens. It’s not just about getting the job done and dusted.
