Residential Works - Glebe

Residential works: Glebe

The project at Glebe was to landscape the rear and front gardens. The back garden was completely demolished, existing soil was utilised and paving levels excavated for raised garden bed built using recycled bricks.

Riverstone paving was used some of which was halved for steppers. Good-quality garden soils were placed in all garden beds, with planting consisting of a feature tree, accent plants, cycads and cordylines. River pebbles were spread around trees and between steppers, creating a dynamic effect. All gardens were mulched and a superb water feature (a recycled horse trough) installed.

A sandstone clad wall was built next to the boat shed , as well as being used either side of the concrete steps and wing walls. A low retaining wall was built to retain soil along the second set of stairs, which were added to the existing concrete steps, and the landing was paved.

Residential Works - Turramurra

Residential works: Turramurra

With a design aimed at simplicity, the materials used were minimal for this Turramurra home and were selected to relate to the established character.

A timber battened pergola shelters the back terrace and now provides views into the pool area and garden. Paving was selected to provide a strong definition to the house and pool entertaining areas. The garden planting was removed and replaced with Chinese pistacio and Manchurian pear trees to emphasise texture and colour, while lilly pillies hedge the site.
