Large yard areas are often left to become overgrown with weeds. If your yard needs some attention, it’s worth considering what design elements could help increase usability and create areas of interest or mixed use. Landscape by A&K can help you think through what the options might be. The team will listen to your ideas or suggestions, and incorporate them into an overall plan. However, if you really aren’t sure what is possible or how you would like your landscaping to be, then the team can also guide you with their advice and expertise which has come from years in the business. For larger yards, one solution is often creating sections or nodes of a large yard can allow you to create versatile spaces which can be enjoyed in many ways. The creation of pathways between separate areas will make your yard easy to traverse as you enjoy the individual elements. For smaller yards, we assess the usable space and design landscaping that suits the aesthetic of the building it will sit against. This means considering form, colour and style. We will also consider the amount of sunlight available to smaller yards, and our knowledge of plants will help you select plants that will thrive in the conditions in which they will be planted. We can help with screens, retaining walls and hedges and borders. If you are thinking of installing water features, creating grass sections or even adding timber decking or features, Landscape by A&K can help with any of these types of jobs.
Shining A Light On Your Brisbane Landscaping
Summer is here and it really is the time to be thinking about how you can be comfortable for long evenings in your landscaped backyard. If you want to enjoy your beautiful landscaped project both day and night, you might want to consider enhancing the lighting. If you have had a major redesign in your backyard and want to begin to use the area to entertain friends, then it might be worth adding some feature lighting to show off your new plants, paving or patio. Proper lighting will help you illuminate your outdoor area, adding to the overall mood and experience of the space. Many people are now opting towards LED lights which are sustainable and cost-effective, making it easier for you to enjoy when you are not worrying about the environment or your electricity bill. LED downlights and pillar lights will help you get the most use out of your space, and are subtle enough they do not interfere with the overall design of your landscaping. You could install lighting along paths, borders or adjacent to rows of plants. The gentle flicker of lights from in between plants and flowers bring a magical sparkling effect to your garden.
