To create a landscape which is considerate of the family's history with this iconic architectural home. One of which celebrates a strong sense of seasonal changed colour. One of which is flexible, diverse and supporting of a growing young family.
A family involved passionately in the design process. This garden is filled with opportune moments and flexible use of space. The key built component, a partially demolished brick garage, retains traces of the past whilst providing a private and cosy alfresco area. A large flowing lawn meanders throughout the garden emphasising the existing nature ground. A series of inconspicuous paths through the garden create circuits for the children to play. Key plants; Liquidambar & Hybrid Strawberry Tree create winter structure and interest to compliment colourful perennial gardens.
"Going through the design process with Brendan at BLUE Landscape Architects was an amazing experience. He helped us visualise what our outside space could become and truly considered our circumstances and tastes in the design process. We are thrilled that he succeeded in convincing us to invest the time in the front end of this process, without this we would not be sitting in our dream garden."
