Landscape – Mosman Residential

The new gardens created for this project compliment the substantial new home set on 1,100 sq metres of land.

Early site works required the relocation of an existing 10 metre high Canary Island Date Palm that is now a feature within the front garden.  Measures were taken to preserve other substantial trees.

A formal garden design with new planting to the street frontage to provide privacy and a sense of enclosure.  A broad entry path is flanked by flowering Crab Apple tree creating a point of interest on the walk to the house.  Level areas of lawn were created above basement car parking and close to the street.

Hard finishes feature travertine marble paving and sandstone walls.  The design also incorporates green steps where low hedge plants are located within the stair structure at each riser.  A large open lawn at the rear of the property for provides ample space for entertaining and childrens play and water features create points of interest.

The rear garden features a 25 metre lap pool, a cabana, levels lawns and decorative planting to the sites boundaries.  A mix of native and exotic species have been used as a means of complimenting the sites surrounds while creating points of interest within the garden.

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