The clients of this modern coastal home in Sydney’s Dover Heights wanted to create a beautiful, Japanese inspired coastal front garden. The priority was a water wise garden that 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 help create the coastal front garden look 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.
