Looking for that awe-inspiring garden? One that really stands apart; that will add significant value to your property?
WINNER 2014, 2016 LANDSCAPING VICTORIA’S ‘THE SUSTAINABLE LANDSCAPE’ AWARD
Visitors to the site wanting TIMANDRA by the Sea:
Smart people want their gardens to look individual - not cloned. This is where good design comes to the fore, followed by high grade landscaping. There is a difference and Timandra's many awards speak volumes. And they have been doing this for a combined 42 years!
What many don't realise is that TRUE sustainable landscapes are far cheaper than the heavily constructed gardens so often seen in Australian magazines. Gardens should be composed of plants, not hard landscaping; skilled horticulturists, like Alison make gardens using plants with an artist's eye, that are also sustainable i.e. they will last indefinitely and not collapse as happens with so many fabricated gardens. When seeking a qualified sustainable advocate, ask the contractor for their credentials in this area. Timandra is the ONLY contractor with this knowledge in the region. And Alison's designs have now beaten some really high profile national landscape designers. So Timandra are leaders within at least Victoria and South Australia! Their peers are the best in the country. Sustainable gardens are cheaper, but they look so much better, and are not just 'native gardens'. When professionally designed, by an expert with real design flair, they stand apart. You don't need to spend a lot of money to have a great garden - its just knowing who to choose for the best advice and professionalism.

12) Permaculture - not as easy as people think! To do this properly, one needs to have a lot of horticultural knowledge in order to recommend plants appropriate to a site. There is no modification allowed, as permaculture is akin to sustainability
and so has to work with the site as it presents. It takes years of hands-on gardening to get this kind of knowledge and is not picked up through books, even those of Mollison or Holmgren, as most of their writings are based on tropical/sub-tropical
sites. Permaculture needs to be site specific.
13) School kitchen gardens - establishing the gardens with children and teaching them how to manage these kitchen gardens.
