Hardwood timber can create a rustic and textural surface finish in contrast to a natural stone paver. Decking can be a practical and cost effective mechanism when rennovating a pool, especially when dealing with challenging level changes.
Freeform limestone wall cladding from @gathercoaustralia. A slimline and uniform capping piece finishes off a very textured wall surface. The twisted forms of Buxus topiary's are highlighted against a white rendered retaining wall.
Steppers in Lawn Area
Pavers set amongst Zoysia grass create an enticing entry to the front of this property. The glass pool fence helps create the illusion of an invisible barrier, creating a clear line of sight between the lawn and the pool area.
Waterhousia floribunda 'Amaroo'
Waterhousia florbunda ‘Amaroo’ on its way to forming a lush screen to the rear of this pool area. This tree was chosen for its screening characteristics as well as its weeping form. This backdrop along with a host of other sub-tropical species has helped transform this space into a relaxed coastal setting.
A recent courtyard project in Alexandria showcasing some bold textures. The detail of the shadow line and the colour of the darker brick help create a certain dynamism. Furniture by @madebytait. LOVE OUTSIDE
Natural Rock Formation
Natural rock formations can be challenging obstacles when trying to maximise usability and create legible connections through a space. The outcome of this project addressed both and utilised the natural rock as a stunning backdrop to this pool area.
The front lawn stitches into the off form concrete pavers. The dark fence creates the illusion of depth and allows the rustic vegetation to sit in contrast. Sandstone boulders organically define the edge between turf and garden.
