Commercial landscaping for Hampton townhouses

Hampton Commercial Landscaping was responsible for this brand new, multi-level Hampton townhouses. A team of expert landscapers designed and executed a stunning outdoor space that perfectly complemented the modern architecture of the townhouses. From the manicured lawns to the strategically placed trees and shrubs, every detail has been carefully considered to create a cohesive and inviting environment.

The use of sustainable materials and native plants ensures that the landscaping is not only beautiful but also environmentally responsible. The result is a space that residents can enjoy year-round, whether they are lounging on their private patios or taking a stroll through the communal gardens.

The location and style of the Hampton Townhouses

The townhouses were conveniently located just off beachside Hampton’s vibrant shopping, dining, and transportation strip, with only a short stroll to Hampton station. The townhouses showcase the latest in architectural innovation over four outstanding levels. The landscape gardening was designed to ensure low maintenance and to be tolerant of coastal conditions. The townhouses and gardens perfectly suit the requirements of modern families, with amenities and public transport close by. Hampton is one of Melbourne’s vibrant coastal suburbs, and these townhouses were just a short stroll to Hampton’s beautiful beach.

The landscaping of Hampton Coastal Gardens

This type of beachhead garden landscape calls for hardy coastal plants. The plants selected by the client for this job included native dogwoods and native grasses such as Lomandra Tanika, Banksia Integrifolia, and Correa alba.

Plants selected for the Hampton Townhouses

The Australian native dogwood (Jacksonia scoparia), not to be confused with the European dogwood, is a small tree or shrub that can grow to around 4 metres tall in ideal growing conditions. It is native to the milder mountain areas of Queensland and New South Wales. It is a great tree to plant to cover a fence or provide a little shade.

Banksia Integrifolia, also known as the Coast Banksia, grows very well in seaside coastal areas like Hampton. It is even tolerant of salt spray as well as frost. The attractive dark green leaves have a contrasting silvery underside, and the plant is a common sight in Melbourne’s bayside suburbs and especially the coastal reserves.

Lomandra Tanika, also known as Basket Grass, is a member of the Xanthorrhoeaceae family, which means it is related to the icon of the Australian native bush garden, the Australian Grass tree (Xanthorrhoea).

Lomandra Tanika is the fine leaf form of the well-known Australian native grass Lomandra Longifolia. These hardy plants are also ideal for coastal gardens, as they can tolerate both salt and wind. An added advantage for this type of commercial landscaping is that the plant is suitable for heavily shaded locations as well as full sun.

They are also a very good plant selection for low maintenance gardens. Once established, very little watering is required from the irrigation system, and they can go without being pruned. If you prefer more blue green foliage, take a look at Lomandra Seascape.

Correa alba is a hardy, frost- and drought-resistant, dense shrub that can grow to around 3 metres. The white flowers, which appear in autumn and winter, are star shaped, almost flat, and sometimes have a pink tinge. This Australian native occurs naturally along the coasts of New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, and Tasmania. Another great choice for Melbourne Coastal Gardens.

Commercial Landscaping

The commercial landscaping for the Hampton Townhouses also included the hard landscaping of concrete paths for the properties.

The concrete paths were designed to complement the modern aesthetic of the townhouses and provide a durable and low-maintenance option for foot traffic. In addition to the hard landscaping, the gardens were planted with a variety of native Australian species, including the iconic Banksia Integrifolia. This species is known for its distinctive cylindrical flower spikes and attractive foliage, which is almost flat and sometimes has a pink tinge. It is well-suited to coastal gardens, as it occurs naturally along the coasts of New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, and Tasmania.

The use of native plants not only enhances the visual appeal of the landscaping but also supports local biodiversity by providing habitat for native wildlife. Overall, the commercial landscaping for the Hampton Townhouses successfully balances form and function to create an inviting outdoor space that meets both aesthetic and practical requirements.
