The brief for this large garden, was to transform an existing old swimming pool and update the garden spaces around it, bringing it up to date with the contemporary architecture of the house. The feature of the garden is undoubtably the magnificent Jacaranda that is incorporated into the design with a simple timber deck flush with the pool coping.
Dark turquoise pool tiles show the tree beautifully reflected. Simple green boundary planting with dark coloured perimeter fencing create a soft moody palette. The addition of a Dragon Tree at the end completes the composition. A generous undercover entertaining area is located off the house with built in BBQ at one end. The success of this family garden design, pool and entertaining area is due to the careful selection of and minimal use of surfaces and materials so that the existing tree and pool shine.
