The pool blanket is hidden in the platform – this allows for all family members to operate it and keep the pool clean at all times.
The owner requested to retain the existing shed for storage purposes.
This gave us a perfect location for the new pool equipment and we decided to relocate the doors of the shed to the side path.
The newly created backwall is clad with Australian Blackbutt – matching the new bench seating on the other side of the garden.
This created a splendid backdrop for a newly created garden bed, including a feature tree.
The owner’s passion for entertaining was considered in the dedicated dining space and needed to comfortably fit the existing table when fully extended.
Porcelain tile floors and custom-built bench seating beneath the mature Mango tree are surrounded by a sophisticated plant palette of native and exotics – all epitomising modern outdoor living.
The porcelain tiles were laid in a herringbone pattern to define and frame the entertainment space.
The tiling extends in front of the house, laid on an existing concrete slab.
The owners had asked us to retain the existing Lilli Pilli hedge on three sites of the garden, which allows for privacy on all boundaries.
To meet the owner’s wishes, the planting palette incorporated a mix of natives and exotics which are well suited to the sandy loam soils throughout the site, with shades of green and blue/grey and the soft hues creating a tranquil outlook.
We used naturally mounding plants and succulents with low water requirements to capture a garden that looks amazing all year round.
