Wheelers Hill, Victoria – Property Two

The owners of this property came to us with a part of their garden they had always struggled with, as it sat beneath a beautiful and healthy spotted gum. Over 30meters high, this majestic tree was definitely a feature we wanted to protect and create a garden to coexist with the micro climate it had created on its own over the 30 plus years of its life. The owners were also very keen to have this tree stay and as they had little grandchildren visiting all the time they wanted a space they could explore and interact with whilst being protected by those hot summer UV rays.

With these key elements in mind we set about designing a garden that would meet all the requirements, plus introduce a beautiful array of indigenous and native planting. When all laid out is became very clear.

With our priority being in the protection of the spotted gum, we introduced semi-permeable pathways to allow water to still penetrate the extensive root system, whilst building up the garden beds in the area with shallow rooted plant species to suit the three different micro climates within the 200sqm area. By introducing shallow rooted plants there was minimal excavations into the existing ground so we knew we would not harm those finer feeding roots leading out to the canopy of the tree.

Overall we were able to achieve an interactive garden for children, a relaxing environment for the owners to enjoy and once again a garden that coexisted with its natural environment.

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.
