Commercial Landscaping Hampton Townhouses

Hampton Commercial Landscaping

Hampton Commercial Landscaping project for some luxury townhouses in the Melbourne seaside suburb of Hampton. The bayside suburb of Hampton is around 15km south of Melbourne on Port Phillip, between Brighton and Sandringham. The strip of shops along the thoroughfare of Hampton Street is one of Hampton’s major attractions.

The suburb is also known for having an excellent swimming beach. Hampton Beach is a safe, sandy bay swimming beach with a popular boating and sailing area. It has an extensive foreshore reserve with barbecue and playground facilities, and a walking and cycling path.

The townhouses showcase the modern architectural creativity over four extraordinary levels. The landscape gardening was planned to ensure less maintenance and to be tolerant of coastal seaside conditions. The gardens and townhouses perfectly suit the requirements of modern families with convenience and public transport close by. Hampton is one of the Melbourne’s vital coastal suburbs and these townhouses were just a short walk to Hampton’s beautiful beach.

The landscaping of Hampton Coastal Gardens

This kind of beachhead garden landscape calls for hardy coastal plants. The plants chosen by the client for this job included native dogwoods and native grasses, such as Lomandra Tanika, Banksia Integrifolia and Correa Alba. These plants are ideal for Hampton commercial landscaping projects due to their hardiness and salt tolerance.

Plants selected for the Hampton Townhouses

The Australian native dogwood (Jacksonia scoparia), not to be confused with European Dogwood. Australian native dogwood (Jacksonia scoparia) is a small shrub or tree which can grow to around four meters in height in ideal growing conditions. It is native to the Queensland’s milder mountain areas and New South Wales. It is a great tree to plant for covering a fence or to provide a little shade.

Banksia Integrifolia also known as the Coast Banksia, grows nicely in seaside or coastal areas like Hampton. The good part is that it is tolerant to salt spray as well as frost. The attractive dark green leaves have a distinguishing silvery underside and the plant is a common sight on Melbourne Bayside suburbs and especially the seaside or coastal reserves.

Lomandra Tanika, also known as the Basket Grass, is a member of the Xanthorrhoeaceae family which indicates it is related to the icon of the Australian native bush garden the Australian Grass tree (Xanthorrhoea). Lomandra Tanika is the gold leaf form of the well-known Australian native grass Lomandra Longifolia.

The hardy plants we selected are also ideal for coastal gardens because they can tolerate both salt and wind. An additional advantage for the Hampton commercial landscaping project is that the plant is suitable for densely shaded locations as well as full sun.

Lomandra Tanika are also a very good plant selection for low maintenance gardens. Once it is established very little watering is required to these plants and they do not require regular pruning. If you want a bluer green foliage, take a look at Lomandra Seascape.

Correa Alba is a hardy frost and drought tolerant dense shrub that grows to around 3 metres. The white flowers which arrive in autumn and winter, are star shaped, nearly flat and sometimes it has a pink tinge. This Australian native emerges naturally along the coasts of New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania. Which is another great choice for Melbourne Coastal Gardens and for Hampton Commercial Landscaping.

Correa Alba one of the hardiest of Australian native plants. It can be grown successfully in most reasonably drained soils in either full sun or semi shade. It is very resistant to salt spray and is tolerant of at least moderate frosts. Once established it is tolerant of extended dry periods. These characteristics make it ideal for coastal gardens in seaside suburbs like Hampton.
