What Goes Into Landscape Design and Construction
Creating a beautiful landscape involves a lot more than shoving a few pansies in a pot, or even having a nice lawn. It takes an innate sense of what the garden itself needs in order to display its full glory. An eye for what will bring out the splendour of the architecture that it surrounds. And an acute knowledge of what the location, the weather and the soil can sustain, as well as what will suit your needs best and is a true reflection of you.

What's Special about Mornington Peninsula
Richard Robertson, the creative genius and powerhouse behind Richard Robertson Landscapes knows this area like the back of his hand. With it's the cool, maritime climate, Mornington Peninsula has an air that's reminiscent of the Mediterranean, with its vineyards and olive groves. It's a place of luxurious scents and rich visual feasts. The fresh, clean bite of eucalyptus, the heady perfume of roses adorning the more formal gardens, the mouth-watering aromas of herbs compete with lavender bushes that bloom all year, spring trees in full blossom and delicious autumn colours. This climate will accommodate almost any garden and landscaping ideas. For those who like to eat fresh food it's perfect for growing herbs, fruit and vegetables as well.
Because we live a very outdoor, entertainment-driven lifestyle, places like BBQ areas, outdoor rooms and entertainment areas are just some of the landscape environments we use a lot. To make the most of these areas, you need to think about landscape lighting, decking and patios, paving, retaining walls, driveways, fencing, pool surrounds, irrigation systems, water features, stone work and of course plants. It's not just about winning awards, and Richard Robertson has done that; it's about making your environment one where you feel most at home. After all, it's where you'll live, entertain, possibly grow vegetables and maybe raise a family. We want to give you the best space in which to do that.
