Bronte Landscape Design

BRONTE LANDSCAPE DESIGN

Bronte Landscape Design

LOCATION – Bronte, Eastern Suburbs, Sydney NSW

THE BRIEF – Maximise the entertaining and relaxation space in the back garden of this ground floor apartment in Bronte. The back garden of the property finishes in an unusual triangular shape that is also lower down than the main timber deck – making it impractical to use. 

Our client wanted to be able to utilise this available space and  incorporate new contemporary pots and feature plants on the deck.

Bronte Landscape Designer Sydney

The back garden of this Bronte project  also featured established tall conifers along the boundary that had lost their lower undergrowth. We designed a lower layer of planting using Liriope and Gardenias to provide evergreen cover including seasonal flowering for our client to enjoy.

We created a feature out of the sunken relaxation pit at the rear of the property. Making use of the irregular triangular shape – we designed a space using organic bluestone pavers, limited border planting and a space for a new outdoor sofa for relaxation. This turned an awkward unusable space into a highly used feature of the new garden.

TROPICAL PLANT DESIGN

We created a lush tropical feel in this garden by starting with Slender Weaver Bamboo and Elephants Ears on the rear boundary. We layered in some Heliconia and Strelitzia on the side boundaries for a lush lower level planting.
We then incorporated some exoctic smaller feature plants in selected feature outdoor pots.

Our plant selection was not only guided by the tropical style but by the orientation of the garden. We needed some full sun tropical plants in certain areas and shade tolerant tropical screening plants in others.

MODERN OUTDOOR FURNITURE

We also introduced new seating areas into our tropical back garden design in combination with a new timber deck to accomodate family entertaining and a feature spa for the family. 

OUTDOOR POTS

We were able to create different elements of height into the design and introduce new living zones by using different outdoors pots. We varied both the size shape and colour of the pots to suit the garden location.

Randwick Landscape Design

LOCATION – North Randwick Eastern Suburbs, Sydney NSW

This private townhouse courtyard garden was initially just all grass. We introduced 3 different zoned outdoor living areas with separate planting plans. Each zone had a different purpose, with all the areas combining into a overarching design theme.

Landscape design Rushcutters Bay

LOCATION – Rushcutters Bay, Eastern Suburbs, Sydney NSW

The body corporate of this beautiful apartment complex in Rushcutters Bay wanted a refurbishment of their apartment block garden.  

The communal garden areas needed to be brightened up in the darker areas of the apartment garden to encourage the residents to enjoy looking over their balconies into an elegant and vibrant space. 

It had to be attractive from all sides of the building, yet hardy and low maintenance. So we included some of our balcony garden design ideas such as modern new large scale pots and some modern tropical plants including Elephants Ears. We finished the planting off with some corten steel edging and new light pebbles underneath.

Rushcutters Bay landscape designer Sydney

APARTMENT PLANTING

We were fortunate to have some existing large boundary plants that already created a privacy screen from the neighbouring apartment blocks.

Our focus was to introduce some lower level feature plants and pots and create a more inviting garden for the apartment block residents to enjoy.

For such a large Eastern Suburbs garden area, we introduced some Elephants Ears in large feature pots coupled with some mass planting of Xanadu.

OUTDOOR FEATURE POTS

We introduced some large circular feature pots into the garden beds to break up the uniformity of the space. We used these to not only create different height plantings, but introduce a different scale of feature plant.

LARGE OUTDOOR COURTYARD

The apartment garden also featured a large open courtyard area that looked great but lacked the sense of design that featured throughout the garden area. 

We introduced a series of Atlantis pots in different sizes and shapes. This also gave us the opportunity break up the planting design with some low maintenance feature plants not located anywhere else in the garden.

The apartment owners were thrilled with our landscape design Rushcutters Bay project and now use their new outdoor areas to entertain and relax.

THE BRIEF – Design a modern coastal garden to complement the new house.

Our clients wanted us to design the coastal front garden, back and side garden areas for their new architect designed home in Vaucluse. The design needed to soften the strong rectilinear lines of the new home’s contemporary architecture and complement the white and grey colour scheme. 

In the back garden, the focus was to create privacy screening and maximise space for the kids to play backyard sport and enable large scale entertaining.

COASTAL PLANT IDEAS

In the front garden, planting needed to soften the driveway and large format steps at the entranceway. Dracaena draco (Dragon Tree) was selected as the feature tree, along with a combination of Australian natives and succulents, with a mixture of green, grey and glaucous coloured foliage. 

Our coastal plant selection needed to be hardy, low maintenance and dog friendly

Landscape Design Clovelly

LOCATION – Clovelly, Eastern Suburbs Sydney NSW

THE BRIEF – Small Courtyard garden – The clients of this lovely Clovelly home wanted a dramatic change with a tropical influence to their small courtyard garden as the entrance to their house.

We transformed their entrance to look like a tropical rainforest floor including elements of Balinese design such as a feature stone sculpture.

Clovelly Garden Designer 

CLOVELLY | EASTERN SUBURBS | SYDNEY | NSW

THE BRIEF –  Their brief was to change the front garden, from a large pond which was situated on both sides of the timber walkway, into a warm, inviting tropical courtyard paradise. 

SMALL COURTYARD PLANTS

Our clients wanted their new front garden to remind them of their travels to Bali. 

We included a variety of new tropical plants defined by a tropical border of Liriope and added a feature stone sculpture as a signature piece.

We accented the small garden with red flowering Bougainvillea which created a striking entrance to the house.

Being a small garden we were limited for space. so instead we closely planted different tropical plants that look like the rich floor of a rainforest.

Clovelly is a secluded Eastern Suburbs beachside suburbs. It is well known for the beachside coastal walk that extends from Bondi all the way south to Maroubra – taking in point blank coastal views of the whole Eastern coastline of Sydney.

While Clovelly is well known for it’s beachside location – it is only located 8km from the CBD of Sydney. This proximity and coastal location makes it a sought after suburb to live.

Living in Clovelly provides the idyllic coastal lifestyle yet it is only a short trip to the suburb of Bondi Junction. This location and the beauty of it’s beachside location and recently renovated houses and older style apartments makes it a popular coastal suburb in Sydney.

It is a quiet suburbs well frequented destination for local Sydney-siders. Not just a beachside haven, it is also famous for sunbaking on the concrete platform next to the narrow beach..

Coastal landscape design is a popular style for gardens – with many houses and apartments located close to the ocean.

COASTAL LANDSCAPE DESIGN

DOVER HEIGHTS, EASTERN SUBURBS SYDNEY

STYLE – MODERN COASTAL

The clients of this modern coastal home in Sydney’s Dover Heights wanted to create a beautiful, Coastal and Japanese inspired garden.
 

The priority was a drought tolerant and low maintenance garden that created a calm entrance to the family home. 

Our client loved a range of plants, including the dramatic Alcanterea imperialis (Imperial Bromeliade). So we incorporated different foliage colours and textures of both native and exotic varieties into our coastal landscape design – all suited to second line salt conditions.

Coastal garden designer Sydney

DESIGN – Curved corten steel edging was used to give a clean modern design to help create the coastal front garden look. We provide a coastal feel and tranquility to the home’s entrance by using drought tolerant Australian plants combined with modern Australian natives.

Tumbled stone pavers were used as stepping stones, along with the addition of Cowra white pebbles. To add a sense of grandeur we brought in some large Sydney Sandstone rocks.

The end result opened up the small garden space by only using one large olive tree as the focal point with lower lying coastal plants – enhancing the sense of space while providing a casual coastal feel.

THE BRIEF – Create a modern tropical front and back garden to match this contemporary renovation in North Bondi. The client wanted a landscape designer to completely update their existing garden and create a tropical paradise featuring a new swimming pool, level grassed area and bamboo privacy planting.

We updated the front garden adding an eclectic blend of modern outdoor pots and a combination of kentia palms and cacti for dramatic planting effect. 

The back of the house featured an new swimming pool, so we introduced more contemporary planting elements and bamboo privacy screening to create a  family-friendly tropical space.

North Bondi garden designer Sydney

THE CLIENTS 

This young family had recently moved to this completely modern home in North Bondi in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. They were looking for an experienced Bondi landscape designer.

We worked with both the client and their architect to reflect their new modern bondi house exterior and open plan interior layout. The brief gave us creative license to create a modern tropical entrance that would soften the white exterior of the house. We introduced an established Kentia Palm and Euphorbia Cowboy together with some smaller casual plantings to give an instant wow factor to the entrance.

BONDI FRONT GARDEN DESIGN

We framed the entrance with introduced architectural pots and planting that not only met the client brief but was inspired by a combination of Palm Springs and modern tropical influence . 

MODERN BONDI BACK GARDEN POOL

The back garden featured a new pool, so we created a planting design that would be sympathetic to the new house architecture yet also meet the brief for privacy and a casual tropical feel for modern outdoor living.

FORMAL GARDEN DESIGN IN KILLARA, NORTH SHORE SYDNEY

THE BRIEF – Update both front and back gardens featuring existing privacy hedges. The client wanted a North Shore landscape designer to update their existing garden and introduce elements of both contemporary and classic Formal design.

We updated the front garden adding elements of contemporary formal design. The back of the house featured an existing pool, so we introduced more contemporary planting elements for this family friendly space.

THE CLIENTS 

A middle aged family who had recently moved to this established large family home in Killara in Sydney’s North Shore.

The client was shortly hosting an outdoor function to celebrate their new home and wanted the new garden to look at its best and most importantly, needed us to move quickly. 

FRONT GARDEN – FORMAL DESIGN

We reduced areas of repetitive planting that weren’t breaking up the existing formal garden space. We introduced a boundary around the lawn of soft white pebbles and corten steel edging to slightly reduce the front lawn size, and create a visual frame for our new design.

We added custom made outdoor cushions on the existing timber day beds. This instantly created a softer inviting warmth to the front garden.

We framed the entrance with new classic terracotta pots featuring circular buxus planting.

CLASSIC BACK GARDEN POOL

The back garden featured an existing pool, so we created a planting design that would be sympathetic to the existing house architecture yet be casual enough for modern family living.

LOCATION – Coogee, Eastern Suburbs, Sydney NSW

THE BRIEF – Create a modern coastal front garden design for a front garden townhouse in Coogee. To include low maintenance architectural elements with a modern Australian influence. The client wanted to incorporate privacy screening at the front of the property, so we included Star Jasmine ground cover to complement their existing plants.

The main feature of this Coogee landscape design project is a new Frangipani tree in a circular corten steel pot –  which looks great at night time lit up.

Landscape garden designer Coogee

EASTERN SUBURBS SYDNEY

 

MODERN PLANTS

We created a modern coastal feel in this small garden by starting with different sized pebbles to give the feel of a riverbed. Complementing this are beautiful organic bluestone pavers and a corten steel circular pot

We layered in some Star Jasmine and other water tolerant plants on the boundaries for a lush lower level planting. We then incorporated some spillover smaller plants to soften the garden over time.

Our plant selection was not only guided by the coastal style but by the orientation of the garden. We needed some full sun plants for the northern orientation which perfectly complemented the feel of this Coogee landscape design garden project.

MODERN OUTDOOR FURNITURE

We also introduced a new small seating area so the owners could enjoy their morning cup of coffee soaking up the northerly sun.

OUTDOOR POTS

We were able to create different elements of height into the design by introducing new outdoor white pots of different sizes. We varied both the size, shape and colour of the pots to suit the garden location.

QUEENS PARK LANDSCAPE DESIGN

Queens Park Landscape Design

MODERN BACKYARD GARDEN IN QUEENS PARK, SYDNEY

THE BRIEF – Create a user friendly tropical oasis coupled with some serious privacy screening for this modern townhouse renovation in Queens Park. The client called us as they had just finished their internal renovation BUT they weren’t drawn to spend time in their backgarden.

After our initial consultation, we discovered their love of Queens Park landscape design including the neighbouring expansive parklands of Centennial Park. With this in mind, we completely updated their back garden by adding new timber decking, a  blend of organic shaped modern white pots and a combination of tropical plants and bamboo for dramatic effect. 

The back garden of this townhouse was small and looked onto their back neighbour’s double story brick wall. So we introduced an outdoor mirror to open up the space and planted advanced bamboo to instantly take the focus off the brick wall. We didn’t stop there as our back curved planter bed featured a small day bed to complete the mini resort style feel.

Garden designer Queens Park

THE CLIENTS 

This middle aged couple had recently down-sized and renovated their Queens Park Townhouse in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. They were looking for a landscape design company who were experienced creating a wow factor out of small gardens.

Deb worked directly with both clients who trusted her to create an oasis out of the limited space available. The brief gave us creative license to create a modern tropical back garden that would soften the view they had of a large brick wall. We introduced an established bamboo together with some smaller tropical plantings to give an instant wow factor to the entrance.

QUEENS PARK LANDSCAPE DESIGN FOR SMALL BACK GARDENS

Our clients have two beautiful dogs – so we recommended a low maintenance synthetic grass for their small garden. The dogs instantly felt at home with a little more room for them to “roam”.

We broke up the new grass with some organic bluestone pavers that enticingly lead from the deck to the daybed. After painting all the timber fences, we added a stunning outdoor mirror that reflected the plants and introduced a touch of glam to the new tropical space.

Landscape Design Double Bay

LANDSCAPE DESIGN DOUBLE BAY

Landscape Design Double Bay

ROOFTOP GARDEN IN DOUBLE BAY, EASTERN SUBURBS SYDNEY

THE BRIEF – To create a modern rooftop oasis garden using tropical plants and create an inviting outdoor space to entertain in Double Bay. The client wanted a landscape designer to completely update their courtyard rooftop area using only low maintenance artificial plants. The focus was on creating privacy from the neighbouring apartment buildings.

We updated the rooftop garden adding large darker troughs and some smaller white circular pots. We used an tropical blend of artificial plants of different heights for privacy and dramatic effect. The rooftop garden was surrounded by apartments and was also exposed to the wind. This created a unique trade-off for our team between privacy and wind tolerance. 

Double Bay garden designer Sydney

THE CLIENTS 

This young couple had recently decided to rent out their Double Bay fully furnished apartment. The entertaining space was limited, so we were called in to utilise their rooftop garden space for secluded entertaining.

We worked closely with our client and the body corporate who had very tight requirements on setbacks, height limits and proximity to air conditioning units. We solved these by designing a completely movable garden with all pots incorporating wheels on the bases. 

DOUBLE BAY ROOFTOP GARDEN DESIGN

We created two distinct zones out of the large open space- one for dining and a cosy seating area for drinks and relaxation. 

The elevated planter troughs instantly created a more private segregated area that didn’t exist before. This new private dining area coupled with our tropical plant selection of palms, Cycads and Sansevieria (Mother in laws tongue) created instant privacy for the new tenants to instantly enjoy.

We designed a new outdoor room in this small balcony space, where the client would be surrounded by greenery for privacy, yet still have room to sit outdoors privately or entertain friends.

We added space saving lightweight white planter troughs with established bamboo that provided instant privacy and created a relaxing green room effect.

We then incorporated a splash of colour using a bright yellow pot that matched the accent scatter cushions.

Our outdoor furniture was a dramatic charcoal that was not only lightweight but also toned in perfectly with the outdoor rug that grounded the whole design.

LANDSCAPE DESIGN DOVER HEIGHTS

Landscape design Dover Heights

LOCATION – DOVER HEIGHTS, EASTERN SUBURBS SYDNEY NSW

Our brief was to design a modern coastal garden with planting for back and side gardens that would be drought tolerant and suitable for extreme coastal conditions.

The clients wanted an experienced Dover Heights garden designer to create an innovative and low maintenance garden that could also accommodate their many family and friends and make it easier for outdoor entertaining. 

We combined Australian native plants with corten-steel pots and modern “zig-zag” bench seating to achieve our contemporary coastal look.

DOVER HEIGHTS, EASTERN SUBURBS SYDNEY NSW

THE CLIENTS – A Dover Heights family who want to have enough room share their new cliffside garden space with family and friends. Living in a highly exposed position on the cliffs of Dover Heights which receives fierce winds. Their garden backs onto the cliff park which is exposed to strong coastal winds, and salt water.

COASTAL LANDSCAPE PLANS

We incorporated a defined decking and seating structure to help create a new modern garden feel. We included a zig zag style retaining wall, inspired by renowned Modernist Landscape Architect Thomas Church, which doubles up as extra outdoor seating.

We incorporated Millboard (artificial timber) decking along the front and top of the wall, to extend the decking into the garden area and incorporated large Corten steel planters to add extra layering and dramatic effect.

LOW MAINTENANCE COASTAL PLANTS

We planted a range of low maintenance succulents and Australian native hardy plants, with primarily blue/grey foliage, that complement the client’s vibrant outdoor dining table.

Garden Privacy Screening Design

Create a sense of driveway grandeur as the entrance to the house is located down a side driveway.

Garden privacy screening Sydney

EASTERN SUBURBS SYDNEY

Young professional family with 2 children in high school.

A driveway is the first introduction to the home and, arguably, the last impression left. 

For our clients of this beautiful villa-style home, we wanted to create an elegant, sense of grandeur in the lead up to their home’s entrance. We also introduced some practical elements of garden privacy screening using established plants that will provide more privacy over time.

BEST PLANTS FOR PRIVACY HEDGING

As the entrance to their battle-axe property, the clients were keen for us to enhance their driveway, with low maintenance plants, and create privacy from the neighbouring apartment building

We incorporated a Mediterranean aesthetic, with a more formal planting scheme, using repetition of minimal plants, including Magnolia ‘Little Gem’, Liriope Muscari and a clipped Japanese Buxus hedge. With the addition of scented Lavender, Rosemary and Jasmine at the front, the sensory garden was complete
