The final touch

Our clients from Gymea Bay had completed their beautiful home five years earlier but had come to a standstill when entering the back garden. They were somewhat at a loss as to what they wanted only so far as they wanted the garden to really finish off the house and provide the exclamation mark to all their hard work. That is where Valley Garden Landscapes came in to provide a modern design that complimented the house but was also packed full of plants and features. The main entertainment area was located on the upper balcony overlooking the St Georges River so the lower area had to offer something completely different in order to draw them down and away from the fabulous views. The garden also had to read equally well from above as it would be viewed most often from the balcony. The design incorporates two in-built seating areas and a hanging chair to act as focal points and two separate water features. The orange water feature is the centre of the garden and it took some convincing to use the bright colour. However, the colour works really well with the surrounding greens of the plants, the dark of the hardwood decking and the light travertine paving. Overall the garden works on many levels and there can be no greater compliment then the fact that the clients now bring guests down from the upper balcony and the endless views into the more enclosed courtyard when entertaining and the fact that they now enjoy every aspect of their home to the full.
