It’s July and its cold! The shortest day of the year is behind us though and the Oasis boys are soldiering on with some exciting stuff.
We are only days away from completing a beautiful garden for the Paddocks and it’s really looking good! The hardscaping has come along nicely over the last few weeks and it’s almost time for us to bring the garden to life with some carefully- selected plantings. The insitu concrete pathway, cobbled driveway and courtyard, planter walls and timber seats are a huge success and we can’t wait to get the lawn down and turn this space from a building site to an urban oasis.
On the other side of our city we’ve been busy getting to grips with our Plattekloof project. The guys from Stefan Antoni architects have designed a beautiful off-shutter concrete style home and construction is well and truly underway. Our challenge this last week was to get a 2.5 ton White stinkwood tree all the way to the top of the site. The 7 metre tall tree had to be carefully craned over the site and into the pre-prepared hole. Just one of several challenges that await us on this project!
Before too long we’ll be running irrigation lines, moving earth and creating levels as well as placing large boulders around the garden. But we’ll talk more about that in the next post.
Until then… keep warm. And although it’s winter…
Let’s go outside
