Looking for that awe-inspiring garden? One that really stands apart; that will add significant value to your property?

Covering Geelong through to Mount Gambier

Timandra is one of the major leaders in Sustainable Landscape Design in Victoria, with nearly 25 years as a specialist sustainable design and landscaping provider and significant awards in both SA and Vic.

Sustainability can use plants that are native, exotic or both. It is about how the site is interpreted from the outset; the aim being to minimise all hard landscaping while using a variety of different plants. These gardens are designed to last. The above garden is sustainable, albeit one that will require more maintenance, while the lower garden is more sustainable because of the limited maintenance – it is a more natural concept. Alison’s skill will enable advice on any style of garden; the pre-requisite being the style of home that the garden is to embrace.
