Landscape supplies are a must-have for any DIY Australian homeowner. If you are a first-time homeowner or if this is your first go at landscaping, it may be difficult to know which supplies are essential. The following checklist will help you plan your collection so you’re ready to tackle your next (or first) garden renovation project!
1. Trees & Shrubs
Trees and shrubs are a wonderful landscaping supply when you want shade or privacy. Plan trees to build a natural perimeter around your property or to create a leafy canopy to host BBQs or picnics under.
2. Grass & Ground Cover
Ground cover is what turns a construction site into a beautiful lawn. Grass is common and can add a lush, green look to your property. Some plants make beautiful ground cover that grows naturally to produce a low blanket of colour that functions as a stunning backdrop to your outdoor space.
3. Flowers & Plants
Flowers and plants are an easy way to add a unique touch to your lawn. Choose blossoms that match your preferred style and palette. They can be planted in the ground along footpaths or around patios. They also look gorgeous in decorative flower pots and planters.
4. Topsoil & Compost
Topsoil and compost will help provide your garden with the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and verdant. Add to garden beds or anywhere you plan to grow fruits, vegetables, herbs or flowers.
5. Gravel & Stone
Gravel and stone is a great all-purpose landscaping material that’s also inexpensive. Use it to build a patio, path or driveway. It can also be used as an accent around pavers or stone.
Mulch is an organic material that helps stop weeds from growing. It also promotes moisture retention so your plants stay healthier. Mulch comes in a number of different varieties and colours so you can choose the best based on style and function.
7. Bird Feeders
Bird feeders serve two purposes: they enhance visual appeal and attract nature’s feathered friends to your garden. If you love to observe wildlife, bird feeders are a fun way to enjoy that pastime right in your own backyard!
8. Blocks & Pavers
Blocks and pavers will really expand your landscaping potential. They can be placed on the ground to create a patio or walkway. They can also be built up to form retaining walls, benches, raised garden beds and much more.
9. Outdoor Furniture & Décor
To truly enjoy your yard, you need a comfortable place to relax. Outdoor furniture will allow you to turn the patio or deck into an open air entertaining space. A few lawn chairs or a table and umbrella set can add functionality to your backyard.
10. Water & Fire Features
Water and fire features can set your property apart from your neighbours. Build a brick fireplace, create a stunning waterfall and pond or fashion a simple fire ring to sit around.
