Landscaping Brisbane – an overview

Over the  last 6 months Instant Greenscene Landscapes and Irrigation  have been busy designing and creating a range of landscape solutions from Brisbane city to the Sunshine Coast. Our work has been a balance of both landscaping for the private, commercial and government sectors.

Industrial landscape work has been significant with landscaping required in new industrial areas of Narangba , Caboolture and Brendale. We also have seen demand for renovation landscapes in established industrial areas of Clontarf, Geebung and Newstead as company’s lift their presentation standards. Our Industrial and commercial landscape has included landscape and irrigation works for factory’s, shop fronts, units and schools. A recent government project saw us completely remodel a tired outdoor lunch area to create a fresh,contemporary recreation area. Landscape works included a combination of  a paved area covered by a shade sail, lawns, gardens with paved edges and paved stepper path meandering through the lawn area. See our web site ‘walk through one of our jobs’ for details of this project.

Residential landscapes are definitely in demand as Brisbane’s renovating boom continues. Landscaping renovations in areas such as  Sandgate, Redcliffe, Bridgeman Downs, Ascot, Hamilton and most other areas of the Brisbane’s  inner northern suburbs combining with landscapes for new homes in areas such as Warner, North lakes, Narangba, Pacific harbour Bribie Island, Sippy Downs and Caloundra has certainly seen us doing some miles.  Our jobs have included a soft fall children’s play area, paved alfresco / patio settings, timber and block retaining walls , designer gardens, drainage, turfing, timber privacy screens, water features, garden lighting, vegie gardens and more.

Thankfully over summer Brisbane’s gardens and landscapes had good rain, and more importantly so did Brisbane’s dams. With near full capacity, irrigation systems can now be used but must meet ‘QLD Water Commission’s Efficient Irrigation System Guidelines.’ Irrigation products now available are more efficient than ever, and along with the right balance of structural or hard landscapes, well selected plants / lawns and good preparation everyone can have that beautiful landscape that makes a house a home.
