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 and maximise space for the kids to play.
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.
