McKinnon Project

Here's an example of a contemporary, low-maintenance landscaping project in Melbourne that focuses on Australian native and bird-attracting garden design.

Abstract garden beds give a layered, modern look and feature Flapjack succulents, Bottle Brush, Poa grasses, Lilly Pilly privacy screening, and Kangaroo Paw. The garden bed features dry stone riverbed garden path with rusted steel edging for longevity that leads to a circular outdoor entertaining area and outdoor fire pit. Garden beds are topped with a thick mulched carpet, and edged with free-flowing rusted steel curves.

This generous McKinnon front yard features Grevillea groundcover, Coral Bark Japanese Maple and a 3000L rainwwater storage tank. Murraya paniculata 'Orange Jessamine' becomes an attractive hedge with its glossy green foliage, dense growth habit and those awesome perfumed white flowers. A thick layer of garden mulch is used for weed control & water retention.

The original tired garage door was repainted in a heritage red to coordinate with the new house guttering and fascia boards.  A  decorative exposed aggregate cement driveway replaced the original path, leading to the rear garage.

And who could forget that bespoke laser cut steel Banksia Nut garden screen that offers filtered light & stylish privacy to the master bedroom.
