Our clients wanted us to design the front, back and side garden areas for their beautiful new coastal home. The design needed to soften the strong rectilinear lines of the 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. Plants needed to be hardy, low maintenance and dog friendly.
