SOUTH YARRA RESIDENCE - LANDSCAPE
The landscape design of this South Yarra residence completes the restoration of this prominent 19th century Melbourne home. The property’s front garden has been rearranged to accommodate a new driveway and garage, while the back garden has been re-purposed around the new pool, spa and pool house, outdoor dining gazebo, rear entertainment courtyard and meandering lawn spaces.
Stone paving for courtyards, pathways and edging is befitting for the Victorian era property and complements the restored heritage elements such as the entry gates and cast bronze water feature. Garden beds have been planted with native ornamental varieties coupled with flowering perennials to create a cottage garden aesthetic that is rich in texture and sophisticated in colour.
