See Native Landscape Design (Adelaide) Examples With Native Plants.
One of the most popular garden styles Adelaide homeowners request is the Australian Native Garden.
There is, an amazing array of native plants professional horticulturists can select for a garden design, producing colourful flowers at different times of the year.
Apart from the ‘Living Picture’ changing with each season, native’s will help attract beautiful birds such as Rosellas and Kookaburras. Drought tolerant and able to handle the heat on hot days commonly experienced during Adelaide Summers, more than imported species from cooler climates can, local indigenous plants offer so much.
Most people think that having native plants as part of their new native landscape design (Adelaide) means no watering, pruning or any sort of gardening care is required, after all these plants grow in the wild, right?
Soil conditioning is also critical to planting natives. A mix of sand and organic mulch is often required to be dug into or replace the existing soil, especially if its become root bound or contains large amounts of reactive clay.
It’s also worth mentioning that many people are looking for a low maintenance landscape design and use the term ‘native’ to explain this.
Indigenous plants are lower maintenance to many not found indigenous to Australia or indeed Adelaide, but many from similar climates can be used to create the colours and look found with an Australian garden style often used on large blocks and throughout the Adelaide Hills.
