Category – Residential Landscape Design more than 150m2


Client brief  

To create a functional space for a young growing family, a haven on warm sunny days away from the hustle and bustle of the city, a warm and inviting place to share with extended family and friends.

Wow factor

“The photos are beautiful. They show off the design very well, although I would say that from our point of view the experience of using the backyard exceeds even what is pictured. As you know, we wanted a usable space – and it certainly is being used. Lots of time to be in the backyard, and on a sunny day like today it is warm and inviting (I had to drag myself back to my desk to work). Too bad we have not been able to share it with friends and family lately.” Client testimonial



Client brief 

To design a functional space that is sustainable, raw and rustic tying in with the existing established trees, adding an element of sustainability by maintaining the natural environment of the site and minimising the impact on the environment.

Innovative materials

All materials used are recycled with a native planting palette and generously proportioned edible garden plots making for a true suburban sustainable garden.




Client brief

To create an intimate luscious space around a new modern house build within an affluent seaside suburb of Newcastle. An entertainers’ dream garden that functions well for the whole family, extended family and friends. 

Points of interest

Material selections throughout the project are tied together through the extensive use of the stone cladding which references the tones present within the travertine, timber, herringbone paving and limestone paving. This is a highly textured and intimate space that is both private and inviting and will be on-trend for years to come
