Florence Avenue – new residence
This beachfront site is exposed to salt-laden winds and challenged with deep sandy soil. Strategic retention of existing trees, transplanting a large Frangipani and new mature planting has created framed views whilst providing protection.
Cowan Road – multi-unit development
Apartments and town houses backing onto Pymble Golf Course. Many existing trees were retained, enhancing the development and providing an immediate sense of place. Extensive successful ‘on-slab’ planting above underground carparks.
Iluka Road – new residence
Northern sun streams down through semi-tropical planting in this terraced courtyard to provide a visual feast. The stonework provides contrast to the dense, lush planting. Large new palms bring balance and maturity to the garden.
Hudson Parade – waterfront residence
Bold tropical planting for a waterfront garden.
Wellington Road – garden renovation
A wild weedy garden throughout steep sandstone outcrops was completely renovated, together with improvements to the pool area, to give this garden a new lease of life while retaining its original character.
Tree removal and judicious pruning allows more sun into the garden, and new low maintenance planting has created wonderful vistas from the house.
Arnold Street – garden renovation
This family garden required significant renovation, including the pool area. Design of new paths, lawns and garden areas complements renovations to the house.
Mackenzie Street – new garden
Major additions to this family home required renovation of the pool area and new gardens for front and back yards. Privacy planting was an important parameter in the design,
and with all perimeter fences hidden by soft planting, the rear garden is now visually extended by the ‘borrowed views’ of the surrounding gardens.
Greengate Avenue – new pool and garden
Extensive additions were made to an old home on this large site, requiring design of a large new pool to best suit the style of the home and work with other new garden spaces.
Some original shrubs and trees were able to be retained, and together with new semi-mature planting an impression of a mature garden was quickly achieved.
The massed planting is strong in form without being repetitive or too formal, and the use of many flowering plants provide year-round interest and softness.
Gardens primarily throughout the northern beaches, north shore and northern suburbs, also elsewhere in Sydney and country New South Wales.
Coastal, waterfront, heritage, native, residential, multi-unit and commercial developments, all aspects of hard and soft landscape design undertaken.
