Dover Heights Clifftop Garden
Contemporary pool design
The dover heights garden with its ocean aspect called for a robust design solution to ensure longevity of the space. The shape of an existing pool was changed to allow for more lawn and usable space. New tiling, rendered walls, planters and salt tolerant planting brought the garden up to date.
The existing undercover alfresco area in this garden was opened up by lowering the tiling level to create internal height and a sense of space. The colour palette was purposely limited to match the house with white light greys, green plantings and blue in the furnishings. A dark coloured pool aligns with the expanse of the ocean views. The addition of a built in BBQ with shaker profile cupboards and marble bench top references the interior styling.
Contemporary planters with Bougainvillea has been used to provide a splash of colour while a cluster of planters provide for much needed greenery at the rear of the pool. In a side courtyard synthetic lawn was added to create a children’s play area, complete with elevated fort, cubby house and climbing wall.
