Soft Landscaping

Planting, Lawns, Irrigation

Having qualified and experienced landscapers translates into a professional, well done job. Our soft landscaping team has years of experience in tree and shrub planting, including planting our specimen trees, which are in bigger bags and can be up to 5 metres high.

David James is experienced in the three main types of lawn installation: seed, ready lawn, and hydro seeding. All of these need to have a good base prepared to ensure the new lawn establishes itself.

If irrigation to lawn and garden areas is desirable we can advise on this. Our team is experienced in pop up lawn systems, drip line, and immersion garden systems.

Mulch and Topsoil

The tree crews at David James process all their brushwood through chippers. This produces mulch which is then available to be applied back onto the soil. This is of huge benefit for both the tree and tree owner. The tree gets better access to water (moisture retention) and the owner can relax on the deck chair for longer (weed suppression).

We also have unscreened and screened top soil available, prices are available on request.

Landscape Maintenance

Creating a beautiful landscape is one thing, maintaining it is another. If you want to keep your new plantings and hard areas in tip top shape, then we can assist you in this. A site-specific landscape plan is created for each different project. Technically competent staff are allotted to the project. We also derive a good deal of satisfaction seeing landscape projects maintained to show them off as they were designed to be.
