Residential Landscape Construction - up to $50,000
WINNER: RB Landscapes, for the Wheelers Hill project

Judges' comments
This outstanding garden has a strong design theme and contains a variety of unusual hard landscape materials and plant stock. These three elements have been sensitively used in the landscape, linking it with surrounding buildings and wider landscape through colour and structure. The garden highlights what can be achieved in an average suburban block with a modest budget. Creativity, good design and construction are not necessarily restricted by money.
