Layered Effect - Drummoyne

This pool and garden design in Drummoyne needed a complete overhaul to realise its obvious potential.

It was a large space but practically unusable given the small paving area adjacent to the house as well as a sloping lawn and pinched pool area.

We decided to create three distinct levels or layers within the garden to maximise the use of each outdoor space.

  • The lower level was given to outdoor entertaining with a covered louvered pergola and in-built seating.
  • The middle layer was to be a large level lawn for the kids and dogs to play.
  • The upper layer is now the pool level incorporating a decking seating area and Travertine paving.

The layers have been linked together with the use of materials from the beautiful sandstone retaining walls, through the decking and the travertine paving.

The planting is a vibrant mix of foliage and flowers creating interest and screening in equal measure.

Garden lighting extends the use of the garden and can be enjoyed even when not using the space by highlighting the feature plants and features.

The clients are delighted with the end result and enjoy entertaining with friends and family. Although they did have one word of warning that now nobody wants to leave so there have been a few very late nights!!

Testimonial from the client

We recently used Valley Garden Landscapes to completely overhaul our large backyard and pool area.

They did an amazing job and have transformed a once fairly ugly and impractical space into a beautiful, landscaped garden.

While we had a vague idea about what we wanted, Alex delivered a seamless design plan according to our budget and needs.

What has resulted is a gorgeous backyard which has far exceeded our expectations. We would strongly recommend Alex and his friendly team, in our situation they they kept to a timeline and to budget and were a pleasure to work with.
