Mosman Residential, Sydney, NSW

About the project

Wendy and Robert, the owners of this property, got in touch with us a few years back to take over the landscaping job at their beautiful home in Mosman. We enjoyed working really closely with Robert to achieve a result which they love living in.

The project consisted of helping design and re-create a new front and back garden, entertaining areas, BBQ area, pool and pool area. We stripped back the original pool and added in steps, resurfaced the pool interior including waterline tile and tiling, and built all-glass balustrading surrounding the pool area. We tiled all the steps and pathways around the pool and garden area, leading down to the front door entry of the property.

Other aspects of the project included:

  • Rendering and capping of all retaining walls
  • Construction and install of the lily pond in front garden
  • All timber decking, timber steps, bench’s and screening
  • Stone masonry and stone wall construction
  • Advising on plant and tree selection
  • Building all garden beds
  • Planting and irrigation throughout the front and back of the house to completion.

From the client

“We are totally in love with our garden. We had a complete mess on our hands – and now we have an exceptional garden and outdoor living space.

It was a complex job from street front to the back fence, incorporating a pool area, glass lift shaft and a pathway up a steep block which needed to tie them all together.

In our brief we wanted something that showcased the house from the street, made the walk up to the front door so enjoyable you did not notice the 65 steps, made the glass lift shaft look like it grew there, and gave us a relaxed pool area and tranquil backyard.

All this was delivered and the result exceeded our expectations. We cannot speak highly enough of Greg and his team.

Professional, highly skilled, reliable, great communicators, flexible and creative.”

Testimonials

Southern Landscape Group did a truly fantastic piece of work on our family garden in Berry (which also happens to have luxury accommodation cottages onsite). It was hugely satisfying to see the challenging design brought to life with such a high-quality finish. They turned a steep paddock into a luxurious, flat terrace with a bespoke concrete lap pool, timber decking and custom fencing on top of a sandstone retaining wall. We were so impressed that we kept on giving them new projects including a beautiful chicken coop. Greg’s demeanour is always positive, and he and his team are reliable, honest, professional and experts at what they do.

Wendy, Mosman NSW

We have been lucky to work alongside the team from the Southern Landscape Group. It’s always a pleasure to see our projects built to a high standard by an experienced team of contractors.

Nicholas Bray, Landscape Architect

We want to thank Southern Landscape Group for creating a fantastic fence on our boundary perimeters. It was no small feat with over 160m of post and rail, with wire mesh fencing to build. Greg was wonderful alongside his team who worked hard to get the job done speedily and professionally. We are so stoked with the results we will be asking the boys back to create the driveway once we are done with the house renovations. 

Kat & Andy, Berry NSW

We have worked with Greg and his team for 8 years and have always found him to be honest and extremely hard working. The team is capable of carrying out a wide range of landscaping projects, are flexible to work with and always looking to help.

David Sawkins, Director @ Blue Group Projects

We engaged Greg to carry out a considerable amount of landscape works on our property in Berry in preparation for a small wedding. Although we had a tight timeline for the project, Greg and his team ensured the schedule of works ran with precision and was carried out to the highest standard. Greg went above and beyond expectations to ensure everything was completed in time and even ‘popped by’ the day before the wedding to ensure everything looked perfect for the wedding the following day. I highly recommend Greg and his team at the Southern Landscape Group and would not hesitate in using them again in the future.
