Sub-tropical feel for tiny al fresco area. Facing south so very little sun, and the plants needed to cope with these conditions.

This space is effectively one giant pool zone. The geometric infinity edge pool/spa combination were designed with its relation and interaction with the home.Visually offering an urban resort style ambience. A range of high quality materials and finishes were incorporated throughout. All elements throughout the property were given detailed attention; boundary walls, raised planters, pool/spa, pool fencing and pool tiling. Composite timber was used on the pool/spa deck for ease of maintenance. The boundary wall is charcoal aluminium slats which offer a great foil for the planting. A bespoke fire pit area was designed looking out to the pool. Lighting was a major inclusion in this design. Entertaining a large number of family and friends is a regular way of life for this family. Therefore the relationship and functionality of the alfresco became paramount importance in the landscape design process. Plants have been selected for their form, texture and size when maturity is reached. Plants provide living statements and soften the edges. Offering a lush green backdrop to the greys and charcoal palette of this project.

Think Outside Gardens
This small courtyard is a carefully designed combination of materials that allows the new and old structures to sit comfortably together and brings the whole garden up to date. The cedar bench top provides warmth to the outdoor space which is dominated by the restrained colours of the walls and flooring. While the consistent mid green colour of the planting provides structure to this garden the combination of varying leaf shapes and textures provides depth and interest. An offset layout to the bench seating allows for depth in the garden whilst the introduction of screen planting creates privacy. The result is a calming and relaxed garden in an urban setting.

Our clients on this project were inspired by their travels to Asia and wanted to mimic this aesthetic at their DC property. We designed a water feature that effectively masks adjacent traffic noise and maintains a small footprint.
