cottesloe remodelled garden

This garden was featured in Scoop Outdoor and Garden and the Sunday Times Home Magazine.

The garden design is influenced by a mixture of Mid-century design aesthetics and the use of sustainable principles such as the strategic placement of a deciduous tree in the rear courtyard and a louvered pergola to allow precious winter light to penetrate throughout the house and garden. It is also designed to make practical use of minimal space with beautiful hand-textured curved raised garden beds serving as places to sit as well as being filled with delicious herbs and Tahitian lime, lemon and orange trees, all a few steps from the kitchen door.

The client's request was for a garden which would require minimal maintenance, would provide them with interesting and adequate spaces for frequent entertainment, contained a small kitchen garden with herbs as well as citrus trees and olives and incorporated artistic elements both in the private and public spaces within the garden. Their design brief was that there be a cohesive use of the key elements and textures throughout the breadth of the garden and that the spaces be useable in all seasons.

Our palette for this garden was inclusive of native plants, edible plants and sculptural exotic species and is furnished with a selection of warm natural materials such as stone, weathered metal, aged wood as well as recycled objects and hand-made textures.
