Modern Australian Native Garden Design – Balgowlah/Balgowlah Heights

Landscape Garden Northern Beaches Sydney Landscaping

BEFORE – Front Garden Northern Beaches Sydney

This is what we started with. The clients wanted an interesting front entryway to their new house. They hated the current bland landscape design of stepping stones, viburnum hedge and buxus. The design brief was also to soften the front driveway and break up the angular nature of the yard and create an interesting space for the kids to play in, but still look appealing and add to the street impact of the house.

We designed a Modern Australian Native Garden using Japanese design principles using asymmetrical design concepts. The design included a Water Feature including a small Waterfall and a flowing creek which passed under the pathway. This trickling water gives a lovely effect to the front of the house. The pathway is made up of recycled railway sleepers and crushed granite.

We incorporated Australian Natives in the garden, but retained the viburnum hedge as a backdrop to the contrasting foliage of the natives such as westringia, baeckea, kangaroo paw, grass tree, flowering gum and native grasses.

The creek flows down the natural slope of the yard to a small pond at the front corner of the garden. This clients kids are often playing with this pond and creek and love interacting with the space. There is a small seating area and some interesting recycled sleeper bench seats incorporated into the garden, allow the family to sit around and have a meal within their quiet, peaceful new garden.

This garden was a great success, the clients were thrilled with the design and the finished garden. Feature Garden Northern Beaches Sydney
