MT MARTHA BY CUTTING LANDSCAPES
We insisted that an enduring galvanised steel edge would need to be used to define the driveways and pathways close to the house but were happy to use treated pine edging to define the gardens further away from the property. The landscape architect had some difficulty with ideas in diverting the deluge of water that would come down from the neighbouring hill towards our client’s home on heavy rain days, this was an ongoing issue that the original builders could not seem to resolve. After careful planning with the architect we decided to excavate a “cut off” trench 1m deep around the front side of the property so the water would fall into the trench and then be diverted away from the property and out to the natural creek, we installed commercial grade aggi pipes into the bottom of the trench and then fill the trench with drainage material. We are proud to say that our clients no longer experience problems with flooding even throughout the wettest periods of the year.
