Designed and constructed gardens
Native Nooks will work with a cleared block, a previously
built garden or an exotic garden to design and plant a peaceful bush
garden or to construct a more traditionally landscaped native garden
using rocks, timbers, carefully selected plants and grasses, lawns and
Native grassland gardens
Our peaceful grassland gardens create the atmosphere of rocks,
logs and small, colourful flowering plans. They include local
plants such the tall kangaroo grass, gentle grey-green snow tussocks
and the lovely local bluebell. Native Nooks pioneered these wild
gardens in Canberra. For the many years our native grassland
gardens have featured at Floriade.
Native Nooks has constructed many gardens in cooperation with
the owners over a number of weekends. We can give your efforts as much
guidance as you want. The cooperation may be as simple as advice on the
best species for your soil, to attract birds or to give you the colours
you want. Or we may work together to design and construct a wild or
landscaped native garden.
Country gardens need a totally different perspective from city
gardens. Native Nooks has an interest in country gardens with their
special needs relating to views, fire danger, stock, protection from
winds, bush regeneration, planting in large areas and having relaxing
places for enjoyment all year. We can design a low-maintenance gardens,
maximising views and carefully selecting species.
Bush regeneration is suitable for areas which have some
remnant vegetation remaining. If you have remnant vegetation
on your house block or country block we can advise on how to restore it
to its former glory. This is best done before building.
