Botanic Ridge, Victoria

From the beginning of meeting this young family, they had a clear idea of what they wanted from their new garden. A family friendly space, one where their two little girls could explore safely and was hardy enough to withstand their two play full pups, Lily and Buddy, whilst allowing a space for mum and dad to unwind in.

Being keen campers, they loved the Australian bush, so it wasn’t hard to introduce some beautiful Eucalyptus into the design, whilst showing them the splendorous array of Australia’s plant species we could potentially use as well.

The brief itself was very clear, create a place we can enjoy for many years to come, that ticked all of our boxes and the end result was just that. Incorporating the girls new play ground, a produce area, room to kick a ball around, room for their beloved pets to run and overall a sanctuary for all who came in contact with the garden.

Beginning the development of the design from the play area we all wanted this to be an integral part of the overall garden, but not to be an eye sore center piece. We managed to settle this into the design so it flowed seamlessly into the rest of the garden. The pathways were all done in a permeable topping to enable as much water was kept on site. From there we used Iron Bark and CorTen steel as retaining mixed with beautiful Honeycomb boulders (and boy were they heavy!) Tying all of these elements in with a lovely selection of Australian natives that will give them everything from shade, color year round and interaction for the kids to learn and explore.

Like so many of our projects and work we do, we arrived at a sanctuary that nurtured their needs but also that of mother natures, allowing everyone to return to nature.

“Thank you so much ladies for creating our dream garden! We would never have been able to create or even imagine the garden we have now.  It was obvious from our first meeting that we would ask you to create our garden as your styling, dependability and knowledge was second to none. Throughout the whole process your professionalism and caring nature’s just made the whole process easy and trusting you both in our home was without hesitation. Your easy going and happy personalities made the process fun and exciting!! You have set the bar really high for any future tradie we require!
Thanks again so much. We now have a garden we are proud of and that our kids can safely enjoy for many years to come.”

Sincerely,

Tracy and Paul Harfield

Alisha & Tarnia from AT Garden Spaces went above and beyond in giving us an amazing landscaped native garden that benefits both our property value and local fauna.

Our small suburban front yard was completely transformed from neglected grass and plants to new soil, a dry creek bed and a plethora of vibrant native plants that complement each other and attracts bees and bird life. What a difference it has made already!

Alisha & Tarnia were always professional, helpful and creative throughout the planning process, with the added bonus of imparting their sustainability knowledge with us. These women work twice as hard as any landscaping business we’ve ever encountered, and produce better results for less or the same cost for their clients. No generic designs, their vision is unique, excellent plant selections, and they are truly passionate about not only the work they do but how their work contributes to biodiversity.

We would highly recommend their services and look forward to working with them both in the future. We have been enjoying our front garden as much as the bees that are pollinating it. Thanks Alisha & Tarnia!

Speaking to Alisha and Tarnia before appointing them for our outdoor works, we found them to be very professional and it was complemented with a warm and friendly approach.

Working with them was a very pleasant journey. They were very generous with their advice and guidance. Whatever works that were out of their expertise, they worked very hard to have them organized and done through their extensive network of contacts. Being on a tight budget, they also took great efforts in ensuring that costs were kept low but at the same time not compromising on the aesthetic aspects of the project.

At the end, we could not find any faults with their workmanship and we are certainly very pleased with their design and the finished result of the soft scapes.
