Landscape – Mosman Residential

The first stage of the redevelopment of a substantial residential property incorporated significant works to the rear of a steeply sloping block, overlooking Sydney Harbour.

New terracing created much needed level open space for the recreational benefit of the owners and their children.  An upper terrace incorporates a level lawn and lounge area beneath a transplanted mature Canary Island Date Palm.  From this position the site enjoys uninterrupted views of the Sydney Harbour, North Head, Middle Head, Manly and the ocean beyond.

A second terrace created a pool area with wet edge and glass panel with adjoining BBQ and entertaining space.

The stepped entrance to the site and existing gardens above garages where enhanced.

As a result of the works previously unused and inaccessible land has been developed to create a well used asset adding much benefit to this family home.

Andrew Leuchars was the Landscape Architect responsible for design, documentation and supervision of the landscape works.
