A well-loved family home needed to transition as children are now young adults and use of the garden as an area for play had now been replaced by lounging and entertaining, as well as enhancement of the outlook from inside the home. The owners had been inspired by travels in Japan and Denmark, and there was a desire to have some of these landscape aesthetics drive the design.


Paving materials were used to link the various garden spaces. Small inset stone pieces create visual interest in broader swathes of paving. Stone boulders and planted mounds mimic the natural environment. Timber is used in extending an existing pergola, continuing into a sinuous pool fence that merges garden and pool area. The curvilinear lines are reflected in semi-circular benches and sinuous pathways
