PREV / ALL / NEXT

This weekend coastal property provided multiple views from within the house to all areas of the garden, but required privacy for swimmers from roadside views whilst maintaining the relaxed coastal charm that is characteristic of the area.

Strong winds, coastal salt and roaming bush turkeys had to be considered at the outset. A soft and calming garden was created, simple in it’s structure but relying heavily on hardscape material and planting structure to create well defined zones. The planting palette provided a layering of softness, movement and summertime fragrance, particularly at the poolside terrace when used most during the warmer months.

A fenceline of star jasmine was incorporated to protect the internal poolside garden bed which preferred a more sheltered position.
