For the people talented and handy enough to not just dream about building their perfect outdoor space, but to make it happen too, something as simple as having the right tools can be what holds them back. 

The cost of purchasing the tools, not to mention the space required to house them, and the time maintaining them, can make owning all your own tools daunting and often impossible. When each project could present itself with a different tool required to complete it, your best bet is to consider renting tools versus buying tools. And if you have tools that just need repairing, there is a one stop shop in Victoria that can do it all.

Aral Rentals allows you to book their services online, such as their pick-up and delivery offerings. And if you need extra help, they can also provide labourers should you need extra hands to get the job done. Whether you are building, cleaning, designing or serious renovations of your space, Aral Rentals has you covered.

Ready to give your yard a facelift this season?

While the selection of outdoor design elements and features is largely based on one’s personal taste and needs, understanding landscape design guidelines and principles will help to ensure you’ve created an outdoor oasis that is pleasing to look at and be in.

When selecting design elements, their scale and proportion to one another and to their environment is key. Ensuring each feature and area effortlessly flows into the next without disruption will help establish the overall balance of your space. Sightlines, transitions, and architectural features all have the ability to dictate how a space is used as well as establish an overall look and feel.

Pattern is the repetition of design elements or shapes in a sequence. Repeating patterns, such as a specific paver design or planting scheme, throughout your space will create a cohesive and unified environment.

Unity is the result of all design elements and features coming together as a harmonious whole. By following the principles of landscape design and understanding their spatial relationship to one another, you can cultivate an outdoor sanctuary that is tailored to you and will last for years to come.

Providing full-service landscaping design and build services, Eden Projects aims to cultivate meaningful garden space transformation and production in outdoor spaces. Book a project consultation today at
