Botanical Traditions - Templestowe Residential Garden

Designed in 2019. The Planting Plan began after a large water tank installation allowed irrigation of the garden beds. Several garden beds were redesigned along with new ones. Native plants and trees were used throughout to create spaces of relaxation and connection with nature. Limited soil preparation was carried out due to the existing trees. This also meant we had to carefully choose plants which could grow well with the soil and other microclimatic site conditions.   

The Planting Design consisted of mostly natives with a few hardy exotics. The site had a rabbit problem so special steps were taken to reduce browsing of new plants. The Clients worked with us to select specific plant choices. We sourced the plants for the Clients and then laid them out to assist the Landscape Contractors.
