LOVE THE GARDEN.com

If you are a Gardening Enthusiast then you may already know about this website….but if you don’t then I suggest you save it to your BOOKMARKS.

www.lovethegarden.com

This great website offers soooooo much useful information about all things gardening. Be careful though as most of the content is written for the northern hemisphere so remember to flip the seasons…If talk is to plant in June then that is our Nov/Dec.

I did go on now to write a brief description of some of the content but it got a little out of hand…so just follow the link above and have a look around the site for yourself.

Rolling For Aspergers

There’s only 1 week remaining until Charlie Duncan embarks on his mission to skateboard 1,815km from Melbourne to Byron Bay. Why you ask…to raise awareness and money for Aspergers Australia.

When Charlie came to me and said he wanted to take 6 weeks off to complete his mission I almost fell over…but since then I’ve seen him training, preparing, chasing sponsors and organising fund raising events to make sure it’s a success.

It takes a certain type of person to take on something this huge. Dedicated and selfless best describe Charlie and I guess you could add crazy in there somewhere…1815km…he’s absolutely mad!

I’d like to wish him all the best on this skateboarding mission. Fingers crossed for a safe and smooth trip with a tail wind!

Look after yourself Charlie, we have a few busy months coming up at Greenside!

29.5 out of 30….What do you mean Second Place!

It’s not easy to keep secrets like this but finally we can announce that Greenside Landscapes were again lucky enough to be involved with Channel Nine’s The Block Glasshouse. I received a call from Carlene after the Terrace week had already started which meant we were always going to be under the pump.

I was reluctant to commit over the phone so quickly headed in to meet Michael & Carlene and see what we were up against. After listening to what Michael and Carlene had planned we discussed some additional ideas and concepts that would be achievable and most importantly appeal to the judges.  From there it was head down bum up to make sure we delivered. In true Block style it was a #&$% fight with other trades all under the pump to get things done. The Block, Keith and mother nature threw everything at us but we managed to finish what I would consider the perfect entertainers terrace.

Judging….

Shaynna Blaze – “WOW”  –  9.5

Darren Palmer – “I am completely in Love with it”…”The perfect urban Oasis”  –  10

Neale Whitaker – “It just works sooo beautifully…It’s just incredible”  –  10

Thanks Michael and Carlene for giving Greenside the opportunity to help create your magical terrace space. Thanks to my team for the LOOOONG hours and late nights that got us over the line.

Pool Side by Greenside

Greg Nunn1.JPG

Pool landscaping is probably my favorite aspect of landscaping. Although most of our work is in the Melbourne bayside area and close to the beach, pools are becoming more and more popular. This particular project for the client was part of a major house renovation as well and both the client and Greenside were stoked on how well it turned out.

The client in this case will be doing the planting themselves and I can’t wait to see how the addition of lush green foliage softens the area and really finishes it off. I will update with photos after the planting is completed.
