Shurman Project


Shurman Project.

A project in West Hobart Tasmania. Included design, natural sand stone paving and stepping stones, sandstone edging, solid sandstone seats, fire pit area, limestone wall cladding turf, custom steel edging, mulching and plantings.

Design Brief

The Design brief for this project was to revamp and update the area while remaining with the natural style the owners wanted. The site started out as a tired grass area with overgrown plants taking over the site. We  removed and tidied up the plantings, removed old weedy grass, installed sand stone pavers, stepping stones and edging, custom made steel garden edging solid sand stone seats and fire pit area, a limestone cladded wall incorporating solid sandstone steps and last but not least fresh turf and low maintenance plantings.
A challenging site which was clay based and quite slippery durning the construction as we had well above average rainfall for the season!
In staying with the brief, the landscape was designed for alfresco entertaining, gathering around the fire pit and family living.
Using natural materials and colours through out has enhanced the natural feeling and complemented the sandstone footings of the existing residence. Certainly returning the life to the garden and alfresco entertaining area. Accomplishing what the home owners were looking for from design to completion and beyond.


Some changes were made to the initial design after discussion with the home owners.

What the customer had to say about the project.
"Landscaping Tasmania recently completed a redevelopment of our backyard. Landscaping Tasmania certainly exceeded our expectations with the finished project. We had requested a low maintenance revamp with an emphasis on natural looking materials. The resulting beautifully laid out stone paths; fire pit area with sandstone benches and gravel; and stepping stones surrounded by lush new grass have transformed our garden. The staff always set high standards for their workmanship and were consistently reliable in arriving when they said they would and communicating their comings and goings to us. During the construction phase they were very flexible when we made an alteration to the plans, and they delivered an excellent project to fit within our budget. The workers were always professional, friendly and enthusiastic and we would highly recommend their services. Nanette and Andrew Shurman"
