This basis of this project was to upgrade the old bushrock retaining walls and open up the front. It was heavily overgrown with large pine trees and palms. The landscape upgrade greatly improved the visual appearance of the property.

With the Clients living in Darwin extra communications and photos keep them upto date. Carefully excavation was required to remove the old wall, cocus palms and tree stumps. Unmarked services were protected with a series of new drainage lines installed.

A brighter modern interlock block was used to create strong and practical retaining walls. These blocks allowed us to do gentle curves, 90 degree corners and planter boxes. Plants were sourced at Miller’s Garden Centre, just before Dad retired.

The completed project is easier to maintain and now opens up the view to the country side and sporting fields. Bottom plantings are designed to screen the lawn area from passing traffic. It was a major upgrade but the tenants have taken pride in the works and the job looks great today.
