A Palm Beach development revisited ten years later
I recently had the opportunity to visit a large development of four houses on a steep site that I had worked on for several years, and was completed nearly ten years ago. My involvement with the project was from the beginning, from planning stages and Council approval, through to documentation, supervising construction and planting. I was so pleased to see that even with minimal maintenance the landscaping, which included extensive planting of local native trees and plants, has achieved the objectives of creating a series of private gardens for the individual houses, and the planting has successfully softened the high walls and road.

Original rock shelves were kept and integrated with new stone walls
It was always going to be a challenge to soften the walls and driveway – but it is working.
