Embracing nature – a world of wellness

This outdoor design covers 2ha and includes everything from a large lawn and pool to gardens, al fresco entertaining and a track for kid racers 

Designed by Kamo Marsh Landscape Architects

From the landscape architects:

Our design was for a young family of 6, who wanted to establish a private, safe, family-oriented space to reflect the semi-rural location, entertain guests in all weather and provide their young children with a place to play and engage with the outdoors. 

The new home was a post earthquake rebuild so it was also a priority to create a sense of maturity and permanence right from move-in day.

The scope included the entire 2ha site and involved everything outside of the house, pool house and garage footprints. 

The family wanted various quality spaces for their young children to grow and develop and these spaces included a large useable lawn area, dedicated play areas, a swimming pool and spa pools, an all weather tennis and sports turf and hardscape areas for scooters, bikes and go carts. 

The owners also wanted interesting and inviting entertaining/ relaxing spaces to flow directly off the house and areas to embrace their love of gardening and what gardens can provide – not just the tangible benefits but the intangible well-being benefits as well.

We were able to create a high-quality finish with a sense of permanence, that ties seamlessly into the architecture of the home.  

Materials which were found on site, such as the wrought iron gate, were incorporated into the design to create maturity and a connection to the pre-earthquake property.

Our work included the master planning, concept design and detailed design and specification of all works, for all hard and soft landscape items. 

This included everything outside the building footprints across the site.
