This project won us the Landscape Industry Awards of Excellence 2005 Best Design [Planting]. A beautiful Italianette Mansion, painstakingly renovated, is complimented with a sympathetic perennial garden planting, blending seamlessly with the streetscape. Significant existing trees were assessed for condition, arborists brought in as required, and a construction design implemented that ensured good tree health. Plant selection was chosen to complement the existing plant material in form, size, texture, and colour.
The rear garden space was designed very much for the active recreation of the client’s young children, using robust species, colorful foliage, and a varied range of flowering times to ensure sustained seasonal interest. An existing pool and surrounds were renovated and brought up to date.
The judging panel called the finished project “appropriate in every respect and demonstrates the designers breadth and depth of plant knowledge”, while the clients are just happy to call it home.
