For this front garden design the clients brief was specific. “A quirky, interesting flowering garden that would provide seasonal interest. Cottagie but not grandma cottagie”. The house itself a modern beach appeal renovation. The garden had to have character to suit.
The landscape design called for a set-back front fence constructed of painted pine slats and capped with rustic hardwood timber capping to tie in with the house architecture. This allowed for flowering mixed border plantings in front and behind to contrast the light coloured paint tones. To further establish a quirky resolve, an interesting mix of flowering natives and exotics were hand picked and blended for their horticultural merits.
With the emphasis on the entry to the property, two formal rust urns were used as accents and to provide a dramatic entry to the property especially when entering at night.
Organic bluestone slab steppers set in a flowering moss like ground cover create a quirky pathway to the front door. With stainless steel trellising used to sculpture Star Jasmine around a Moroccan inspired wall art. The garden provides a unique street appeal and is the cause of much interest with locals in this popular Burraneer street.
