AGD was asked by a residential housing developer to design the landscape surrounding the Blackwood Park Sales Office. The key objectives of the brief were: o low maintenance landscape o low water use o low implementation cost o permanent interest
Compacted crushed gravel was combined with cobble sized pavers to border and intersect the length of the entry. This provided a safe, low cost but attractive entry that has textural and visual interest. The soft materials chosen for the paths sit comfortably in the wider rural landscape and complement the light, contemporary architecture of the sales office.
A mix of evergreen indigenous, native and exotic low water-use plants were selected. Maximum visual impact was achieved with mass planting with species interwoven to create swathes of movement and a tapestry of texture for year round appeal.
