Forever home

Project brief

This was interesting, originally we arrived to provide a design solution around the back fence to replace some hideous bamboo and replace with some new planting. As I listened to their needs, I soon discovered these client had fell out of love with their garden being an impracticable space with a giant 1940’s pool smack bang in the middle taking up all the pace. We discussed our services and presented our 3D design services as a way of communicating how that would look. I also suggested we could create a fresh look, through the design process we were able to show the hidden opportunity that was awaiting to be discovered. Once we presented they were taken back with the amount of wish list items ticked and could not wait to start. This was a great project from start to end.

Key Details

  • We used a seamless drainage system to provide a high end feel even in the smallest details.
  • The custom coping we had fabricated to drop into the pool to create a seamless flowing effect from surround into the water, additionally we clad the garden edges in matching tiles to keep the material consistent throughout the design.


  • To screen out the large neighbouring house we used a Hibiscus Tiliaceus Rubra (Red Beach Hibiscus) This was a great choice being a fast growing, lower maintenance option for being next to the pool.
  • Within 18 months this was already a completely private backyard.

Structural Features

  • Soft green lush lawn area for the grandchildren to enjoy and area for the pets to sun bake.

Private plunge pool

When designing with minimal space, every measurement is important. We had to consider many elements in this area. We had to look at the balance and ratios on all heights, levels and transitions to achieve a functional yet flowing result.

Custom entry way

Large natural basalt stone slabs were used to create the transition from the front door to the custom designed gate house. Strong lines in landscape design lead your eyes.

Cantilevered seating

To create a modern and stylish effect, this floating seat creates an eye catching statement on its own.
