Gardens in Melbourne
Van Leeuwen Green specialises in garden renovation and restoration. Not everyone wants or needs major landscape construction to create a beautiful garden. A better option for many people is transforming their front or back yards through new plants and planting. Van Leeuwen Green renovates and refreshes gardens by carefully assessing the existing vegetation at your home, working with you to decide what plants should be removed or managed differently eg. by more regular pruning. The next step is to select species that will either complement your existing garden or establish a new look or theme altogether.
The skills and knowledge that Van Leeuwen Green brings to garden renovation are based on careful plant selection. This involves choosing species that have the right aesthetic and functional qualities as well as plants that are robust and reliable. As the plants and planting specialists we only recommend species or cultivars that are grown by the best nurseries. We ensure that plants are available, grown in the right sized container appropriate for your garden and then planted correctly and at the right time of year.
GARDEN RESTORATION SERVICES
Any garden renovation we do is based on a vision for how the plants will knit the garden together, making it more usable and attractive. We work with you on the spot to determine exactly what you have in mind and can show you garden transformations achieved over many years. For larger projects or complex plantings we recommend our design service.
Van Leeuwen Green also restores historic or heritage gardens. These gardens often require detailed restoration plans and we work with heritage consultants and designers to bring these gardens back to their original state.
We provide garden landscaping services across the inner and south eastern suburbs of Melbourne including bayside suburbs like port Melbourne and Brighton to the leafy suburbs around Hawthorn & Camberwell.
