Landscape Sanctuary Lakes

This lakeside home as well as having to look good had to deal with some pretty extreme environmental conditions.
The soil was quite reactive so extra reinforcing was used in paving and walls and lots of compost added to the poor quality soil for gardens and lawn.
Plants where also chosen for colour and hardiness to the local environment.
