Practical & Innovative Landscape Design Adelaide Hills & Rural Clients Adopt.
People living across the Adelaide Hills and throughout rural regions of South Australia typically have larger sized blocks than what’s commonly found within metropolitan suburbs. Many are on acreage, making the amount of outdoor space, or garden area to look at landscaping at least four times larger than a typical quarter acre suburban block.
When looking at landscape design Adelaide Hills homeowners often choose an informal garden style that blends into their surroundings. Natural timber, stone and steel are the materials used almost exclusively when building, with roll out instant lawn and native plants used to plant out the garden.
While having a larger area of land has the benefit of being able to include more design elements, stricter adherence to landscape design principals should be followed because of this. Wasting space on large sized blocks is a common mistake when landscaping without a clear vision and plan.
Typically, country or rural blocks require more substantial earthworks due to the severity of the slope they’re on.
Experienced landscape designers can minimise these costs by coming up with innovative solutions for sloping blocks that increase the amount of usable land by cutting and filling using retaining walls, garden beds and paths to separate different areas within the garden.
Often too there’s amazing views clients wish to take advantage of that needs special consideration.
Outdoor living areas are always included, with most including several to provide solutions for different goals. Outdoor entertaining areas with seating, tables and chairs typically have a covered roof so they can be used all year round. Some, often used as an extra space for the family to come together are open and many are after a private space, hidden from neighbours viewing or other parts of the garden.
It’s not uncommon to have a more formal area, even if the surrounding garden is informal, just like a house that has a separate formal lounge or dining room used to entertain friends.

The garden design elements chosen will most commonly be included based on lifestyle desires and the size and nature of the family unit.

Couples without, or those with older teenagers, soon to be gone will have different needs, wishes and goals for their garden makeover.
Rest assured whatever your unique needs are, Tony Stanton will come up with a landscape design that ticks all the boxes you’ll be delighted with for years to come.
As you head up the freeway to the hills or travel down the southern suburbs of the Fleurieu Peninsula, Winter and night time temperatures are generally much lower than found across the metro suburbs.
For this reason one of the most popular elements included within a landscape design Adelaide Hills residents have planned and drawn up is a fire pit with seating.
As part of any outdoor living area, under a verandah or under the stars, fire pits can be a place family and friends come together to share good times.
Outdoor spas and large swimming pools are also popular garden design elements incorporated into a landscape design for Adelaide Hills and rural gardens.
