The Brief

This significant BALI award winning project was a complete start from scratch with the existing house being knocked down and a new property built in its place.  The initial brief was for a traditional swimming pool around the side of the house along with entertaining space, but the designer convinced the clients a natural swimming pool as the main focal point of the garden would be a much more attractive option. 

The Solution

A rill with a series of waterfalls connects the main pool to the filtration beds which in themselves form a feature.  A dining area with a larger rill and water feature connecting to the pool via a chute on the other side completes the water elements.  A tennis court, strolling garden with rose arbour, hot garden complete with hot tub and changing rooms and a walled garden with a greenhouse are the other main parts of this garden.  A new driveway and entrance complete the landscape.

The planting is significant with over 5000 perennials, shrubs and grasses and over 20 new trees planted.  Stunning!
