A recent landscaping project undertaken in Brisbane’s inner suburb of Alderly presented narrow and tight access, a issue becoming more prominent with Brisbane and Sunshine Coast landscape projects. As presented by our landscape before and after pictures, the landscape works in this site were to be quite extensive given that there was no machine access.
Landscape works included terracing the backyard for aesthetics. This was to be created by manually shaping the existing surface, installing a Tasman GB block wall and importing top soil. A drainage issue from higher neighbouring properties was considered. A sub surface drainage system utilizing 100mm socked agg drain was installed along side and rear fence lines to minimize in flows. Two surface pits were also installed below retaining wall to cater for extensive rainfall periods common in South East Queensland’s storm season.

The aesthetic appeal of the landscape was created using 400mm pavers as steppers with a decorative gravel in fill. A paver border edged the path, gardens and lawn areas. Soft Sir Walter Buffalo was chosen for the lawn as it is ideal for children’s play, shade tolerant and has low water requirement. A Balinese planting theme was selected to soften the straight lines used in the structural landscapes. Plant selections included MaCarthurii palm, various Cordylines, Song of India, Crotons, various Bromeliads, Liriope stripey whites and Xanadu. A hardy selection using colour foliage plants to create a low maintenance garden with year round colour.
Automated irrigation was installed to garden areas using a low flow micro irrigation system, with dual tank water and town water supply. Elegant stainless steel garden lighting complemented the project. These were used as up lights spaced along the centre of the path, with mini spot lights highlighting the garden features and subtle bollard lighting spaced around the garden borders.
