Plan Your Garden...

We suggest have a landscaper to assist you in designing your garden. If the budget is tight you can work on one section at a time and in the end, it all fits together like a puzzle!

Plan Ahead...

The nursery won’t always have the plants you love in stock, so we suggest have a plan and order ahead, so the right plants arrive at the right time to plant your new garden.

Plant Wise...

You don’t have to wait till your house is finished to start your garden. Some plants such as boundary trees can be planted during the build, so they are a good size when its time to move in. Talk to your Tasbuilt consultant about your garden plans, there may be ways they can help – clearing trees, suggesting positioning on your block etc.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match...

When picking your plants don’t be afraid to mix and match. Choose different heights, colors, shapes and sizes to add adventure to your garden.

Lighting...

There’s nothing more charming than small garden lights to bring your garden alive in the moonlight.

Whether it be a large garden light at the entrance or small solar lights lighting the pathway. There’s nothing more welcoming than coming come from a night out to a garden that’s lit up and looking fairy like!

Be Creative…

Enhance your garden with small pot plants, garden boxes or large urns to add some contrast and fun. Some small garden chairs and table or a feature wall could create a relaxing area to spend your summer evenings. Water features, decorative bird feeders, whimsical gnomes and fairies…. The only limit is your imagination!
