We completed this pool and garden in Randwick nearly 2 years ago.  Our clients are a young family with 3 energetic boys.  Our landscape design was created to suit their busy lifestyle.

A beautifully renovated federation home sits upon a flat suburban block in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.  We were given a blank canvas and asked to create a family friendly, low maintenance garden that complimented our client’s creative style.

We used a mixture of raw materials to honor the period of the home.  Natural Bluestone was used around the pool with Spotted Gum screens providing an interesting backdrop. The Spotted Gum was left untreated, so the timber will ‘grey-off’ and create that beautiful silvery tone.  The same untreated Spotted Gum was used for the large timber deck off the rear of the house.

An organic stone feature wall was installed at the end of the pool to hide a storage shed.  Adjacent to the stone wall is a another timber screen with a copper shower to rinse off after a swim.

A mixture of native, sub-tropical and exotic plant species were chosen to create texture and interest from all angles.
