Buderim, Sunshine Coast
As part of a landscaped garden that includes screening plants, vegetable gardens and a pool scape, the client wanted a ‘wow-factor’ courtyard to greet people as they entered the property.
The area was to also function as an outdoor living space, with a special emphasis on evening use. Carefully selected pavers for the flooring, and recycled pavers as bricks for the hob walls invoke the feeling of an ancient Italian ruin. Hardwood timbers of generous dimensions complete the feel of timeless elegance and luxury.
The planting brief was for flowering, scented species so specimens with a high natural oil content were chosen. The formal planting arrangement serves to complement the classic style of the arbour with soft lighting built-in for evening atmosphere.
