Excavation, Residential Retaining Walls and Planter Box Gardens




Landscape Concept plans, Consultation, Supervision of other trades, such as Excavation Works, Low Voltage Lighting, and Concreting. HNL Team completed Retaining Walls, Drainage, Paving, Sandstone Edging, Garden Works, Water Systems, Lawn Works and Planting ideas.

My clients engaged O’Mara Constructions to complete additions to the home. This resulted in changes to drainage lines and major landscaping was required. I first supplied 2 Concept plans which outlined retaining & drainage requirements along with budget levels.

The design was to improve access, highlight the front door, create separate outdoor rooms, improve shade levels and control water run-off. ECS Retaining Wall blocks were used to create terraced gardens with highlighted planter boxes. New works were edged with random sandstone ballast to create a solid rustic border.

Special importance was paid to drainage. Additional Ag drain lines and Premium Stainless Steel channel drains were combined to insure perfect water control. Earthy Clay pave’s 300mm Regal Tans were used to high-light the retaining wall blocks and set a very ‘Gardeners Landscape’.

This was a major project completed in a number of sections. We believe it is an extension of an already Rural Estate.
