In November 2018 Leaf Wood Rock Landscapes, a returning exhibitor of the Mackay Expo for the past 6 years, submitted their recently completed project to the Landscape Queensland Construction Excellence Awards. This project, located an hour out of Moranbah and three and a half hours out of Mackay, was one of their most challenging to date due to its location and logistics to get people and materials to and from. The Cantaur Park project included landscape design and construction of around 3000sqm area and the installation of 64 tonnes of sandstone.
To properly showcase this project for their submission they obtained drone footage and it clearly paid off! Leaf Wood Rock took home the award for “Residential $250,000+” category. Leaf Wood Rock was the ONLY winner for the evening who was located outside South East Queensland. They were also finalists for several other categories including Design & Construction, Landscape Feature and the prestigious State Award.
“The client’s vision had been 17 years in the making and we were really eager to tick off all the boxes on their list”, said the Leaf Wood Rock team. Hand carved sandstone elements with the property’s brand and a laser cut metal gate were just some of the personal touches that made the project unique.
The Leaf Wood Rock team was responsible for preparing the site, improving soils, irrigation system, planting, turfing, lighting works, installation of sandstone feature walls, fencing and driveway construction.
Frequent and ongoing drought conditions were one of the major considerations for this project with restricted water availability onsite. The owners required their garden to be drought resistant as the only water source is a dam located on the property.
