BGC Brikmakers Display Garden

Today I got the chance to photograph a commercial job we designed a few years ago. It's a display yard for Perth paving company Brikmakers. They manufacture a wide range of Landscaping products including Blokpave and Blokstone.

These double sided walls allow for signage on the outer side with a feature wall and seat internally.
They also act as a formal entry point from the footpath level.

The Signage walls are repeated down the side to address both streets as the building is located on a corner near a round-a-bout.

This feature wall has Cordyline australis 'Sundance' planted on each side. Planting was kept to a minimum to reduce maintenance.

We devised a grid pattern to organise the various paving styles and colours into their respective ranges.

Seating for tired paving shoppers to rest their feet.

These Evergreen Ash ( Fraxinus griffithii ) provide some welcome shade.

Native grasses Lomandra 'Savannah Blue' ( above ) and Dianella tasmanica 'Tas Red' are planted along the boundaries.We used Phormium 'Flamin', Phormium 'Bronze Baby' and Cordyline 'Red Fountain' as feature plants.

The front entrance demonstrates the use of tactile paving and bollards.

The display is located on the corner of Norma Rd and McCoy Streets in Myaree and is a great place for home owners,builders,tradespeople and architects to choose paving for their projects.
