Dover Heights

The clients of this coastal home wanted to create a beautiful, Japanese inspired front garden, that was water wise and created a calm entrance to the family home. The 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 – all suited to second line salt.

Curved corten steel edging was used to give a strong line style to the garden and provide an Eastern sensibility and tranquillity to the home’s entrance. Stone pavers that were leftover from the client’s earlier back garden renovation were used as stepping stones, along with the addition of Cowra white pebbles.

"I had the pleasure of using Deb to design and implement our front garden in Dover Heights. Deb brought a great energy and modern design ideas to help make our coastal garden the best feature of our house. Ensuring the plant selection was location appropriate was no small achievement as every plant needed to be fully researched to withstand our areas salty and windy conditions. The result was a garden that combined modern corten steel with organic shaped edging and planters and a plant selection that not only looked amazing but lasted well. I would recommend Deb to anyone who values the outdoor space of their home, and doesn’t want merely a ‘cookie cutter’ garden design."
