Creating innovative playgrounds across Melbourne
Major outdoor projects require a collaborative approach. This is why Great Spaces works hard at fostering excellent working relationships with local clients, contractors, and builders alike. Further still, because we offer end-to-end services in outdoor planning, construction, and maintenance, we’re able to reduce the number of hands and contacts required to get a project finished, streamlining communications and project management.
So what’s the difference between how we approach a new build versus renovation of an existing plan?
1. Existing terrain: With an existing structure, garden, or pathway, we have to focus less on the natural terrain and what services will be required to make it pedestrian and play safe. While this doesn’t limit the creative scope for the project, it can mean less demolition work is needed to prepare the space for the construction.
2. Existing structures: If you’re looking at adding on to, renovating, or reimagining the green area of an existing playground, we take into consideration existing builds when selecting and recommending select plants, grasses, and garden beds. Why? Because we know how gardens grow and develop over time and want to ensure that maintenance and gardening will be an easy task that doesn’t interfere with the play structure.
3. Brand-new builds: While there may be additional demolition required to prep the land for development, planning an entirely new build means that we can help select play equipment in line with our horticulture suggestions and make structural recommendations. This often means we have more flexibility when creating a plan for your garden as opposed to working around an existing plan.
The Great Spaces team comes from a background in landscaping, horticulture, and garden construction, meaning we can create an outdoor vision for your property regardless of its current state. Further, having worked with commercial, private, and public sectors, we know what it takes to build eye-catching results of all kinds.
