Hortum Landscaping, Hendra (QLD)
CATEGORY: Residential Construction $70,000 to $150,000
Hortum Landscaping has transformed this residential landscape into a tropical oasis after a massive tidy up of the pre-existing elements including overgrown bamboo and other plant life that were removed to make way for some fantastic entertaining elements including a pizza oven and luxurious pool area.
Apart from the large pool are, a boules court was installed using artificial turf. The thick surface is perfect for its longevity and durability against the movement of the balls while in the play. Surrounding the turf, mondo grass, white stepping pavers and tumbled white pebbles were placed. These light-toned additions pair well with the paving around the home and in the pool area.
Throughout the landscape mature palms and smaller tropical species were planted in reasonably shade locations allowing them to thrive overtime.
“The attention to detail in both hardscape and softscape treatments combined with exceptional and effective earthworks and grading makes this project a truly commendable winner. The interfaces between surfaces were executed cleanly and concisely, delivering both a highly functional and aesthetically pleasing outcome. Planting throughout the project has been very successful – a result of soil preparation and effective drainage. The quality of the materials and construction methods deliver a beautiful subtropical living environment that will continue to age well into the future.”
