Wharf Road, Berry: Landscape Design and Construction

Client:  Rod & Nikki

Year Completed2017

This landscape design and construction project was located just outside the rural village of Berry on the South Coast of NSW. The Loco Landscape team took inspiration from the architecture of the federation style cottage to set the mood, theme and direction for the landscape design. With a young family, the clients also needed a garden that was low maintenance and suited to the needs of all members of the family.

We borrowed elements from the Arts and Crafts era and traditional cottage garden themes to create this contemporary cottage garden that compliments the house and works with the surrounding rural landscape. The garden was divided into sections, to create a multifunctional landscape that can be used by all members of the family at various times throughout the day, all year round.

Structure, plant selection and planting is the back bone of the design with an emphasis on creating a seamless fusion between the house and garden.




Our expert team are the cool climate garden specialists, having created elegant landscapes throughout the region, including Mittagong, Bowral, Moss Vale and Robertson.


We design and construct landscapes that are sensitive to the stunning locations of this particular region, from escarpment foothills and coastal clifftops to rural pasture lands.


Our experience across the Illawarra has led us to adapt our design to various locations across Wollongong.


Jake and his team provided an excellent service from day one. We approached them originally for a landscape design only, this then led to construction and now on going maintenance. We can not fault the service provided.

We were extremely happy with the results from the Loco Team. From start to finish nothing was a problem and everything was completed on time, as promised and to a great standard. The boys really went the extra mile to put the finishing touches on the project and ensure we were completely satisfied.

I was initially a bit overwhelmed by the thought of having our gardens constructed and not knowing what to expect but Jake and his team put me at ease and listened to my ideas, walking me through the process, keeping me informed throughout the project. The end result was better than we could have imagined. Thanks to the team at Loco for going above and beyond when creating our beautiful space for us to enjoy.

Watching our garden being transformed by Jake and the Loco crew was great to witness. Jake was very easy to work with and informative providing insight into what works in our areas and suggestions on utilising space to suit our needs. It was an excellent experience from beginning to end.

With no real idea of what we wanted from our property and garden we approached Loco Landscape Design Studio who were extremely helpful and prompt with creating an amazing design which then developed into construction. We now have an amazing garden that caters for our whole family's needs.
