Oderings Landscaping

 

The company specialises in all aspects of lawn installation and lawn care. Whether it’s a new lawn, or bringing an existing lawn back to life, the team has the knowledge and skills to give you a lush lawn that your neighbours will envy. What is the function of your lawn? Is it a show piece or to play backyard cricket with the kids? Will there be pets using the area? A consultation with the landscaping team covers these considerations and the surrounding environment to give you a successful purpose-built lawn.
“We are often asked what our secret for a successful lawn is, and our reply is always the same,” Landscape Manager Jeremy Odering says.

“Success lies in the preparation, do it right the first time and your time and effort will be rewarded with a healthy lawn that looks amazing for years to come.” By using the highest quality methods and materials, Oderings Landscaping takes the time to do it right, ensuring there is a good depth of quality topsoil and that the surface is perfectly level before the installation. Depending on your needs they offer the options of instant lawn, hydroseeding and hand-sown seed.

Don’t forget the irrigation! Take the hassle out of keeping your lawn hydrated through the summer months by installing an irrigation system. Depending on your needs and budget, this can range from simple pop ups through to a fully automated system.
To keep your lawn looking lush in the years to come, it’s important to keep a regular routine of maintenance and care. With its dedicated maintenance service, Oderings Landscaping can care for your lawn all-year-round. Services available include scarifying, dethatching, feeding, weed control and more.

Curators House

An edible initiative: growing green thumbs at The Curator’s House

The greenfingers amongst us have long recognised the benefits of creating food sources in our very own backyards and, with a growing recognition of the health and happiness benefits inherent in growing your own goodies, garden to plate initiatives have been increasing in popularity.

An edible garden series is certainly something we can sink our teeth into

“We’ll discuss the importance of green cropping, and cover topics such as companion planting, orchard planting and crop rotation,” says Curator’s House gardener Louise Young.
Run twice yearly in autumn and spring, Louise co-presents the sessions with sustainability expert Rhys Taylor. “With Rhys and I coming from quite different work backgrounds, the benefit of our sessions is that participants get two points of view and two paths of information.”
Louise says the sessions are not only accessible to non-gardeners, but they are also great to upskill and update experienced gardeners.
“We want participants to leave our session really inspired to put in a vege garden, and also to have a bit of confidence in trying new techniques,” Louise says. “We have quite an organic approach to vegetable gardening – looking after the soil and the environment is very important.”
There will be the tastiest of tapas treats provided during the session from the Curator’s House restaurant. “Our tapas will focus on in-season produce from the Curator’s garden,” Louise says.
Participants in the session need only bring a pen and notebook, plus suitable footwear for walking around vegetable beds.
The Curator’s Edible Garden Session – Sunday 22 April, 10am to 12.30pm.
