Landscaping Quote Facts:

Did you know structural Landscaping refers to the work involved in the construction of external landscape features, and non-habitable structures including the following:

  • retaining walls of any material that do not form part of a habitable building,
  • fencing irrespective of the construction material, driveways, paths and other paving of any material,
  • cabanas, pergolas, decks and non-habitable shelters,
  • ornamental ponds, water features and other structural ornamentation.

A contract for structural landscaping can include any specialist work that is integral to the overall work, but such work must be carried out by the holder of an endorsed contractor licence or qualified supervisor certificate in the relevant category of specialist work.



Paving used to be simple, now there are so many choices and so many styles and options there is enormous potential for an excellent paving job to go pair shaped.

Abelia can provide advice on the most appropriate base for your paving as well as paving technique that is best suited to your needs.

No single paving job is the same. The sub paving area, the expansion joints, different materials, water and sunlight are just a few of the issues that need to be considered before the type, colour, size, texture and material is chosen.

If you want your paving to not only look great and add value to your property but would actually like it to stand the test of time, Abelia Gardens can guide you along the often complex decision pathway. Whilst most people rush in and purchase  pavers and seek a contractor to install, we strongly advise our home owners to work through our 7 step decision making process to optimize results and keep cost in check.

Retaining Wall

Retaining Wall Willoughby

Retaining walls are required wherever earth needs to be contained against the natural pull of gravity. Every retaining wall is unique and in our significant experience, a custom design is no more expensive that a cookie cutter wall, however, it meets the development regulations and more specially the actual  physical requirements  of each wall.

Retaining walls have five main  types:

  • Brick or Masonry retaining wall

  • Wooden retaining wall

  • Besa block retaining wall

  • Concrete retaining wall.

  • Sand Stone or Rock retaining wall

Each and every retaining wall comes with strengths and weakness, aesthetic and architectural character as well as physical properties and durability. That’s just the start – there are the drainage requirements, the overall mass movement of the yard, the acidity and moisture content of the earth and the list goes on.

Retaining walls can and do fail if they have been incorrectly installed, or the wrong type of material or wall is used or even due to inferior grade of materials among other reasons.  It is critical that an expert assess and advise home owners on specific retaining wall solutions, where the retaining wall will hold back more than 100kg of earth or is higher than 50cm.

Abelia Gardens has been advising and supplying retaining walls to the people of Willoughby, Castlecove, Roseville, Middle Cove, Castle Crag and Chatswood for over 20 years.  Our team understand the difference between a retaining wall that looks good and will fail and one that looks good and is fit for purpose. We will be upfront with each and every home owner as to the real choices that will meet the specifics of the job and look good.
