Treated Pine sleepers were all the rage when I commenced Landscaping Services in Gold Coast back in the early 80s.We use to buck the trend and build our walls out of a grade railway sleepers. They were heavier, harder to cut, but they looked better and lasted longer.

Termites seemed to rise out of nowhere and bush rock or sandstone walls were a hit. They still are a personal favorite of mine. Besser Blocks and link walls saw the rise of masonry Retaining Walls and they work well usually in formal environments.

Back when “Adam was a boy” and I began my career with Landscaping Services. Timber fences ruled. The options where, do we butt palings together or overlap. Concrete posts came onto the market to extend the life cycle. Along came color bond and a whole array of colors hit the market. As people became more adventurous and discovered to make a feature of their fences and a whole array of materials hit the market. Now we can build modular fences that look like bricks and mortar in a few days at a fraction of the cost. Our clients love the idea that we can deliver a total package of Landscaping Services and they only have to deal with one tradesman. Timber screens and laser cut panels are very popular and we have received rave reviews on our finished products.


Maintenance Tips

The first step is to add gypsum to the soil. Apply gypsum at 1 kilo per square metre, digging this into the top 10-15cm well. Gypsum works on the clay, breaking it up into small crumbly pieces making it easier to work with and also improves drainage.

The next step is to build up the soil with plenty of organic matter.

Change Keep lawnmowers & wildlife clear from trees, too.

Moisture issues around a home can become a serious problem if they are not dealt with. Moisture can be caused by faulty plumbing like old pipes or even downpipes not properly connected.

Fully functional drainage system is a must these days.

Change Plants are in clay soil, do not sit in water. Too.

Drainage gravels are generally used to facilitate the movement of water around your property or more to the point, away from it altogether! The most common usage is behind retaining walls or sub-surface drainage trenches running underneath lawns and gardens. Drainage gravel is essentially used in any location where you need water to run freely and with minimal resistance.
