With Project Scope This home in Dalkeith uses bore water to irrigate its gardens and lawns. Unfortunately there is high concentrations of calcium and salt in the ground water. This became an issue when sprinklers were overspraying onto their black perimeter fence....

Earth & Water recently landscaped around our pool. We were genuinely thrilled with the result! Nigel and all of his team were extremely professional throughout the whole process and had great ideas on how we could improve on our initial vision. All works we’re well explained and communicated. We love it!
From the first phone call, Nigel and his team have been very professional and very helpful. Nigel takes care to explain everything very clearly. I could see that my garden was struggling to survive but I didn't know why. Nigel suspected high salt levels in the bore water and a high soil PH. This was later confirmed by a Laboratory test. I agreed to Nigel's recommendation to install his Fertigation and Water Conditioning system. The whole process was completed without a hitch and within a month my garden started showing signs of recovery. What I also love is that I can apply fertiliser direct through this system, saving me the time spent spreading fertiliser. The Fertigation system means I'm no longer loosing sleep over my garden and to me that's money well spent.
Nigel at Earth and Water has designed and installed the landscaping and retic systems for our current and previous homes.
When re-financing the valuers have commented that the landscaping has added considerable value to the home, we just think it looks great.
The retic is something special as it allows us to fertilise by putting it in a bucket and opening a couple of valves to allow it to be distributed through the system. Much easier.
We have no hesitation in recommending Earth and Water.
By far the most professional contractor we engaged over the 3 years of building our house.
I am confident that there would be no one better at Landscaping in Perth.
Nigel took a difficult job with lots of criteria to satisfy and delivered it well above the standard we thought was possible.
We had engaged other well known Landscapers who just had no answers to the issues we had.
Nigel and the guys at Earth & Water blow all the competition out of the water.
Nigel and his team did a fantastic job for us and our front gardens with raised veggie beds are constantly admired by our neighbors.
Fixed and identified problems that others had told us were lost causes (no need for a new bore and our lawn is looking great, we thought we'd have to start again).
Great advice, quality work and the guys doing the work are all awesome.
Earth and Water were recommended to us when building our home. They have been involved in designing all of our irrigation, rainwater tanks, greywater system and now some green walls as well. We've found them to be friendly, efficient and very persistent when something brand new [and there's a lot with our home that was pretty new technology when it was installed] doesn't work properly. We're very happy with the way the system is designed and how well it all works. And the ability to translate a concept to a practical design has been amazing! thanks to all of you.
We have had a great experience with using Earth and Water for our gardens. After 4 attempts with other companies we had almost given up hope of creating the right garden for our home. After our experience with the creation of our vertical garden by Earth and Water (an awesome feature of our new internal courtyard) we asked Nigel to consider what he would do with the sloping front yard. It turned out fantastically and really complements the front of our house (we are talking about re-levelling, walls, plants, fence and reticulation – the lot). Our relationship continued to the large backyard and at last we have a backyard we enjoy being in – fun and practical. We have really enjoyed the creative process, have been very well treated and highly recommend Earth and Water to our friends!
We value our reputation at Virgin Bores just as much as Nigel does at Earth and Water..... No hesitation in recommending our clients to Nigel for specialist attention from a true professional in irrigation and water management. Had plenty of customers thank us over the years for the referral. Nigel's expertise in sub surface and drip irrigation are recognised industry wide. Important though with sub surface irrigation that service and maintenance recommendations are adhered to. Just ask Nigel for advice.
Earth and Water were contacted to help develop a landscape design when we redeveloped our dental practice on Canning Highway in 2008.
We were struggling to create a design that would work adjacent our rear car park which had a sloping block. We also wanted to create an appealing frontage for our business.
I met with the owner of Earth and Water, Nigel Thompson to discuss our landscaping and reticulation needs.
Nigel is a genius with a natural eye for design and creative ideas and thanks to him we were able to create a beautiful garden that is commented on consistently. Nigel was able to share his passion and due to his tireless enthusiasm we were completely satisfied with the results.
As the owner of Earth and Water he has always given us his complete attention and over the last years whenever there has been issues with maintenance Nigel and his team at Earth and Water are always there for us to keep our garden blooming.
Always highly recommended.
