WaterWise
Many people are concerned that having a great looking garden means excess use (at times wastage) of water. This certainly does not have to be the case! Elegant Landscaping and Design can provide advice about WaterWise Gardening through applying an understanding of soils, substrate, correct WaterWise plant selection and thought about plant location and aspect. With our help, any location can offer productive gardens, with water efficiency.

Productive Soils
Soils in your garden should never be removed as all soils have the potential to be productive. With a few simple soil tests, we can advise on what is needed to turn your dirt or sand into productive soil for plants to thrive in. This may be as simple as aeration, mulching or addition of organic matter.

Fruit and Vegetables
Growing your own fruit and vegetables has endless advantages compared to buying from the supermarket. Eat fresh fruit and vegetable varieties year round. Elegant Landscaping and Design can provide advice about what to grow; when to plant and harvest; how to feed your garden, and ultimately how to produce your own fresh fruit and vegetables.

Horticultural Consultation

Weeds and Pest
Elegant Landscaping and Design are able to identify weeds in your garden or plants that have the potential to be a future problem. We are also able to identify insects, scales, mites, fungus, diseases and other pests that can attack plants. After these problems have been identified we can then offer you a number of solutions including sprays, natural alternatives or different cultural practices. You may choose to treat the problem or we can carry out the procedure for you.

Specialist Plant Advice
Elegant Landscaping and Design has specialist plant knowledge in both common and rare plant varieties. You may have a plant, tree or flower that is special to you. Let us give you the knowledge to make that plant healthier, bigger, brighter, productive and more prolific.

Seasonal Plantings
Sometimes the garden may not meet expectations during certain periods of the year. It may require a little winter colour, or a light fragrance during the summer heat, or a new interesting option in a shady environment. Let Elegant Landscaping and Design find and suggest plants to fit all occasions and garden situations.
