Award Winning - Ainslie makeover

We first heard from this client in early 2015 through designer Dinah Meagher, who had developed a plan to renovate this much-loved home garden so he could enjoy his free time in a serene and welcoming space, with less ongoing maintenance. It was a new direction in the client’s garden journey which he had spent a lot of time and effort to establish over a 12-year period. It was a difficult decision to put a lot of his own designing and planning under the bulldozer, and it took a lot of careful consideration and planning with Dinah to retain the now mature and much loved trees.

For the front entry garden we adapted existing retaining walls and constructed supplementary feature walls from rendered brick. A black Raven Granite paver was used to tie the new and old elements together, as well as providing a perfect complement to the house colour. Established Maple trees and transplanted Cercis Canadensis provide the backbone to this garden, while the new design introduced a Bay Laurel hedge and underplanting to rejuvenate an already beautiful formal Entry.

In the right hand courtyard it took a light touch to makeover the private entertaining space. The main challenge here was sourcing a mature Prunus Schimidsu Sakura to complement the existing tree. The renovation here involved new paving and edging laid over outdated pebble-crete and minimalist planting of few species for a fresh look that is on trend, with lasting appeal for years to come.

The left-hand side of the property required a boundary retaining wall to prevent water runoff and promote healthier growth in the productive garden and screen planting, benefitting the garden for many years to come.

In the rear garden and adjoining entertaining areas we stripped the garden back to its’ bare bones, keeping only the mature trees, shrubs, vegetable beds and brick edging. The design incorporated a beautiful deck with waterfall edges to link the dining room to the outdoor space, providing a place to sit back, relax and watch the sunset.

Another key feature in the design is the Wee Jasper Basalt freestanding wall with recycled timber floating seat, which is a stunning feature in the view from the living room window and hides the thriving vegetable beds in the rear.

The planting was a highly-deliberated component, as this provides the framing to the feature seat with maples on either side, block planting in colours and layered heights in the rear. The new steel raised beds not only build on the existing curvature from the brick edges, but also connect all areas of the back garden together.

This garden has created a serene setting for the client to inject his personality, with sculptures for interest and pots to experiment with interesting plants that have specific soil requirements.

This garden is not only a very peaceful, relatively low maintenance garden, but also a beautiful composition of native, productive and decorative plants that provide interest with different blossoms and foliage all year round.

Simple but effective - Ngunnawal

Our client wanted a new parking space at the front of his property, one that can be used as a drive in – drive out (horse shoe) style. With this he wanted a grand entrance but one that allowed style and functionality by providing access to the rear of the property, he had an idea of a boardwalk but wanted that little bit more “pizazz”. We constructed a Corten retaining wall to allow a terraced effect. We laid fresh turf and added some planting to soften the harshness of the dark colours which provides multiple textures in one picture perfect garden. 

All in all this was a simple design but yet so effective.

 

 
A grand entrance using minimal steps to allow easy access. Constructed from treated Pine sub frames with Merbau decking boards then cladded in Corten to match the new terrace.
 
Merbau boardwalk allowing access to the rear of the property through the side gate.
 
The new terrace constructed out of treated pine sleepers and then cladded in Corten sheeting, topped with fresh Canberra blend turf.
 
The Merbau boardwalk with a curve…. The crew had a challenge on their hands but if you look closely you can see the fine details of how precise each board was cut.
 
The horse shoe car space was created by spreading and compacting Ginninderra Red Granite using Adbri Havenbricks to create a neat boarder.
 

We are very proud of this Corten wall. Hoping the rain would take motion with the rusting effect we decided to help speed up the process. A little trick to help bring the rust out is…… vinegar! Yep countless hours of rubbing vinegar all over this wall to get it to this beautiful colour.

Can’t say we smelt great after this.

 
Adding a mix of shrubs and grasses creates this soft effect that compliments the hash structures and colours. Installing irrigation to both lawn and planting to keep on top of the lushness was a must for this client.
 
The horse shoe allows easy access from the driveway and provides a private parking space.
 

The boardwalk allows easy access to the front of the property, finishing flush with the current front door entrance the colours of the timbers and granite compliment the existing red features of the house.

Play Space - Harrison

The Client
Our client approached us with a unique request – their teenage son Max is autistic and needed a place to play.

They successfully applied for a grant toward their son’s lifestyle and development, and wanted a trampoline to encourage some physical activity in a safe place. The family also includes an older daughter at university and professional parents, keen to do the best for their children.

The Site
We started with a west facing side courtyard space that was run down and unused, partly due to the slope of the land and also because of the afternoon heat. The site falls about 1.8 metres from front gate to rear gate, with door landings at two different levels.

On the positive side it had good access, some well established trees and hedges, and was ideally positioned for overlooking from the kitchen and living rooms.

The Design
We developed the design in conversation with the client to incorporate the new trampoline they had bought and a generous new outdoor living space. Site constraints included the existing trees they wanted to keep for shade and levels of the existing timber landings.

The trampoline was set at a level that allowed for drainage to flow by gravity via buried pipe to a lower rear garden. This determined the paving level, which in turn was perfect to accommodate all the fill from the trampoline pit excavation. We modified or extended the existing timber landings to meet the new paving and finished the upper edge with a stone seat wall.

The layout follows the straight modern lines of the house and continues its colour scheme in off white pavers and stone.

The Result
On the day we were stringing up the trampoline Max was waiting for his first bounce. He has bounced on it literally every day since. The effect on his physical health has been dramatic – losing weight, gaining strength and muscle tone, as well as improving his coordination and abilities on the trampoline. The knock on effect for the family is immeasurable.

More of a surprise is the whole family now enjoy using this space – especially at night or in the mornings. We managed to create a sophisticated outdoor living space on a relatively small budget. They expect to use it even more in winter since it is a great evening heat trap.

A Gardeners Garden - Deakin

Our client is a keen gardener and wanted to set up the framework for pursuing his hobby for growing produce and tending his collection of bulbs. We were also asked to create an inviting and functional entertaining area off the living room. This presented our main design challenge since the living spaces open to the narrow side area facing north and this also steps up the hill toward the rear garden. Our solution was to construct some broad timber steps and decks that simultaneously link the levels, provide casual seating, and also house storage inside. The views from the living area focus on a new stone courtyard wall with a water feature filling the area with the sound of trickling water. The upper garden area incorporates a curvaceous lawn and a collection of trees selected for their various foliage and flowering colours throughout the seasons. A productive area with raised vege beds and several dwarf fruit trees provides the owner with crops throughout the year. The street front has been transformed into a simple formal entry statement, with space between evergreen plantings for seasonal bulbs and perennial flowers.

Front Yard
We created a formal entry statement with low borders of Liriope and Buxus, to frame new flowering Plums and the owners existing roses.

Outdoor living
New light coloured paving in French pattern reflects light into the main living rooms. The timber steps lead up to the rear yard and also work as seats with storage inside.

Art
The black granite water feature allows water to trickle down the face of the stone and through the pebbles into a hidden chamber underneath. Our beautiful new sandstone wall is up lit at night and forms the fourth wall of this outdoor living room.

Decking
The timber deck is designed to connect the levels of the garden as well as offering broad landings for pots and seating.

Contemplation
A place to relax and enjoy the garden, yet still plenty of space for the kids to play. These photos were shot recently showing the gardens in full bloom, with a variety of spring bulbs and flowers.
