Holland Park

City view, natural terracing

Key Details

  • Natural sandstone boulders used for long term, maintenance free solution.
  • Captured city views by lifting backyard and installing a usable decking space under the Jacaranda tree.
  • We created a level lawn area for future little ones to play as previously was a rocky mountain side.
  • Custom partially finished structure, we had this custom steel fabricated arbour made and in future when budget permitted the clients where going to clad in laser cut panelling.
  • Native planting to stay in keeping with the surrounding suburb was key

Tree roots

It is always advisable to design around the tree roots if you love your big tree’s. We consulted our tree doctor on this project with the design proposed to ensure we created something that was not going to damage the tree. We opted for the decking as we could stagger the footings around the roots and allow water to still penetrate the ground.


Although quite a feat at times, creating usable space adds so much value. On this project we managed to gain city views, so now our client can watch the fireworks! Boulders are a good solution for a long term solution. I guess the Egyptians where on to something!
