Waters EdgeContemporary Patio, Sydney

Designed to make the most of a steep site, this private home in Sydney’s south has created great spaces to enjoy the view of the water. The design features a covered main pavilion with a fully equipped kitchen including a sink, fridge and wood fire pizza oven. Designed for entertainment it also includes a large dining area, sunken spa and wall mounted TV. O the same level of the pavilion is a sunken fire pit area nestled underneath a large existing Frangipani. Travel down a set of steel stairs and you come to an inviting blue pool with wet edge spill over out to the bay. The curves of the pool and lower lawn area designed to add interest when viewing from above. A generous lounge and nearby pool pavilion provides plenty of places to relax by the pool and the cantilevered section of the pavilion, with feature timber panelling, ensures that there is shade poolside and look fantastic next to another mature Frangipani. The overall look and feel of the project is sleek and contemporary, with plants chosen to emphasise the shapes of the design and to add contrasting colours. This project is definitely a great place entertain and relax whilst enjoying the view of the water.

Cushions for Outdoor SofasSofas lack appeal without cushions, and your outdoor sofas are no exception. While you’ll find cushions in a variety of outdoor-friendly fabrics, acrylic is the most hard-wearing and breathable among them, and will resist colour-fading better than the others.

Plant near living spacesPosition fragrant plants like frangipani (Plumeria) near patios, terraces and decks to add a magical, tropical quality to outdoor evenings. Plant as hedges or, if you have limited ground space, try planting them in containers (be sure to use heavy pots, as they can topple easily). For parties, make the setting more enticing by placing smaller pots of scented plants like petunias (try Petunia pendula, an heirloom variety, for the strongest scent), gardenias (Gardenia jasminoides) or, of course, old roses (English or David Austin varieties have the strongest scent) here and there beside seating areas.

3. Slow down your watering for some plantsMost established plants need less water at this time of year, especially those in pots, both indoors and out. Some plants such as succulents and frangipani (Plumeria), need next to no water in winter unless it’s unseasonably warm.Find a local gardener on Houzz to get your plants thriving

While this sofa is positioned under a cantilevered balcony to protect it from the elements, it will still need an occasional clean. A wash-and-wipe is a great way to get rid of any unsightly possum poo or light staining. To keep the sofa looking like new, many have covers that can be removed and run through a washing machine. However, don’t even think of unzipping the covers before you’ve checked with the manufacturer.
