Are you looking to improve your garden game with some DIY landscaping projects? Sounds like a great way to spend your time and improve the aesthetics of your home. If you’ve not spent much time in the landscaping world before, all of the different materials might leave you feeling a bit overwhelmed.
At Western Landscape Supplies we are the experts in all things landscaping. Here are some of our explanations for landscaping materials and what to use them for.
Want to Protect Your Soil from Weeds and Dryness?
Barks and mulch are great ways to keep weeds from germinating in your soil. Mulch is also good for keeping your soil moisturised so that your plants don’t dry out. It also can moderate any fluctuations in temperature, so it will keep your soil cool on those hot Queensland days.
Give Your Garden Some Texture
Decorative gravel is a good way to add colour and texture to your garden. You can use it in many different ways, from lining a pathway to filling an empty garden bed or use it as a border between the grass and the garden bed. This will give your garden a naturally put together look.
Need to Fill a Hole or Stabilise Some Ground?
If you have a hole in your backyard that needs filling or you want to add some stability to muddy ground before laying down pavers, compacted material is the way to go. From under-slab to crusher dust, there is a range of compacted materials you can use to stabilise your ground.
Keep the Water Moving
For a decorative and innovative way to keep water moving around your property, use drainage gravels. These can be used to reinforce retaining walls, but can also be used to fill trenches dug under lawns or gardens so that you ensure the areas don’t become waterlogged.
