Lewisham Road Prahran Project - Evergreen Trees Direct

Lewisham Road Prahran Project - Evergreen Trees Direct

    Welcome to our landscaping showcase at Lewisham Road North, Prahran. This project highlights our use of Ficus Hillii Flash and Betula Pendula Moss White - Silver Birch trees to create a beautiful, low maintenance and practical garden.

    Ficus Hillii Flash is great for privacy because of its thick, evergreen leaves. The Silver Birch adds beauty with its white bark and green leaves, making the garden look special. 

    We also used smaller plants like Arthropodium, Fatsia Japonica, and others to add variety and balance to the garden, making it more interesting.

    By incorporating these carefully selected trees, including the Ficus Hillii Flash for hedging and screening, as well as the majestic Silver Birch with its elegant form, we successfully transformed the Prahran project into a captivating and inviting space. The combination of these trees not only enhanced the aesthetic appeal but also contributed to a vibrant and sustainable environment.
