Ways to dramatically improve your yard

As another hot summer in Victoria approaches, your yard eagerly awaits some love and attention. You have two options: abandon it to a solar beating from the summer sun, or improve your yard for a sunny season of family fun. Whether you lack the time or the effort to accomplish visions of landscaping grandeur, Victoria landscaping company, Garden Culture Victoria, can help you customize your outdoor living space. Here are three ways you can dramatically improve your yard with Victoria landscaping professionals working for you.

Decks & Patios

Adding a deck or patio to your yard is like creating an additional room outdoors for entertaining or relaxing. Host birthdays, barbecues, dinner parties, and game days, or enjoy some much needed quiet time to yourself with a good book. No matter how much space you have to work with, Garden Culture Victoria can build you a customized, durable deck with hand-selected materials, reinforced support and framing. With all woodwork backed by a 5-year warranty, a new deck can turn a forgettable yard into unforgettable family fun.

Stonework

Add elegance and lasting beauty to your landscape with paths, patios, waterfalls, and stonework. Accentuate other landscaping features, increase accessibility around your yard, and compliment the aesthetic of your house with an agreed-upon plan from Garden Culture Victoria. Stones are hand-selected for type, thickness and size. Sidewalks and stone patios feature a steel-reinforced concrete slab then masonry sand and Portland cement mixture is smoothed into the area. Once the rock is mortared and cleaned, Garden Culture Victoria professionals acid wash away any sign of construction. With all rock work guaranteed for two years, stonework can turn a bare yard into a brilliant one. Image result for Hedge

Hedges

  Hedges can create a great border and framing for your garden. Not only are they robust but they are easy to maintain not only the plant themselves but the ground under them. You can customise you look by adding flowering hedges to bring some color to your yard. Try to avoid planting varieties of hedges that drop flowers or leaves as they can create a nightmare when it comes to trying to keep footpaths and driveways clear of debris. Visit the Sunshine Coast Tree Lopping website for more information on the best hedge for your situation using their easy to use hedge selection chart.  

Water Features

Water features can be small, off the shelf elements to perfectly customized ponds, fountains, and waterfalls. Ponds add an exquisite natural element to any number of landscapes and environments, and provide a perfect place to populate with plants and fish. Fountains provide the restful ambience of a mountain stream or add personality to an otherwise dull space with a downward fall, rising jet, or combination of the two. Waterfalls are designed to customize-fit your property with just about any material you can imagine. They use very little water, are energy efficient, and cost very little to maintain throughout the summer. Turn your backyard into a serene environment with a single long fall, or multi-tier aquatic wonder.
