Drought Proofing Your Garden

A drought proofed garden is the ultimate in low maintenance. We can assist you in drought proofing your garden by:
  • Designing a garden with little or no watering requirements.
  • Using succulents or Australian native plants, which are very low maintenance with low water needs.
  • Mulching to increase the water retention of plants.
  • Using drought resistant turf such as Kikuyu, Santa Anna Couch or Buffalo instant turf.

See images of our drought resistant gardens in our gallery.

Grass and Artificial Turf

The key to a great looking lawn is:
  1. Soil preparation.
  2. Choosing the most suitable lawn.
  3. Proper care and maintenance.
We offer a range of grass and artificial turf varieties to suit any sized backyard. Drought tolerant turf is increasingly popular due to today’s water conscious environment. Varieties include:

  1. Sir Walter Buffalo
  2. Kikuyu
  3. Santa Anna Couch


We can design and install drip irrigation systems, which keep in line with current regulations in minimising the use of water in times of restriction. These systems go hand-in-hand with drought tolerant plants for optimising water usage and still ensuring a beautiful landscape all year round.

  1. Fountains
  2. Ponds
  3. Cascading walls
  4. Statues

A range of colours is available in each style.
