Innovative Backyard & Front Garden Makeovers (Adelaide).
Most of us enjoy spending time relaxing, playing and entertaining friends at home. The backyard especially, becomes our private sanctuary we retreat to for peace and quiet, lay out on a lounge to get a Sun tan, protecting your skin with Sun lotion of course and fire up the ‘barbie’ as you enjoy a ‘coldie’.
It’s a safe place for children to play with the dog and, with great weather for most of the year, a space that brings the whole family together whether enjoying the pool or eating dinner at a table under the verandah.
Even though we spend so much time outdoors, our gardens aren’t often designed well because we haven’t put much, if any thought into a garden design that suits your families needs.
We all get inspired when watching TV shows showing backyard renovations and often say wouldn’t it be great if we had… followed by we should, followed by most of us doing nothing about it apart from attempting a few DIY improvements.
Maybe now it’s time to put those if’s and should’s into action with a garden makeover that’s been professionally designed to suit your space, that includes your wish list of features with different areas catering to all your families needs, followed by completion of the physical landscaping work by licensed landscapers.

Front Garden Makeovers
Increasing the ‘Curb Appeal’, that increases your properties value is a driving force for many, but instead of thinking about just looks, have you considered making it easier to go to the letter box which is currently difficult because you’re on a sloping block?

When facing sloping blocks, using retaining walls to split the garden up into levels is a popular way garden makeovers are handled across Adelaide’s steeper suburbs, such as Craigburn Farm. Many native plants were included and the walls allowed for creepers to be planted that, over time would cascade over.

Not all garden makeovers Adelaide clients request have their backyard fence next to a National Park, but that was the case at Gilberton, with clients looking to blend their new back garden, while hiding the fence but increasing privacy to the view of the Gum trees with an informal, more Australian style. Lots of native plants helped provide colour to this native landscape design as well as attracting a few of the neighbours from over the fence. The Adelaide Rosellas are now part of their extended family.

Tony Stanton’s qualifications in Horticulture was an advantage that paid dividends for a family at Mawson Lakes. Wanting to block out the view of all the double story homes they were currently forced to look at, Tony selected and then placed plants in-front of the fence to not only hide the Colourbond but change the clients view dramatically. A retaining wall provided separation to a levelled lawn area from an outdoor entertaining area with table and chairs under a verandah.
