With a sloping block to the rear, our client’s initial consideration was to play it safe with a terraced entertaining space and carport. Yet when the Ekersley Garden Architecture team were brought in they suggested to them to ‘challenge the norm’.
The end result is a garden which provides a journey with multi-function that will develop character with age. The initial entertaining terrace is an easy space to spend an afternoon watching the sunset through the specimen Beech trees. The garden then transitions through a field of Lomandra under the Jacaranda, heading down to the lower terrace which offers space for entertaining connecting out to the rear parkland, off street parking and ample storage. The clever installation of shutters on the back fence offers multiple options for privacy and light and further extends the landscape making the space feel larger.
‘Normark Landscapes were professional, respectful, knowledgeable, friendly and down-to-earth to deal with. They were a pleasure to have on-site during construction and always kept us well informed of progress and what to expect. Once on-site they worked hard to complete the project in a timely manner and were interested in ensuring that we were satisfied with the end product. We are very pleased with the quality of the landscaping delivered and the post-completion follow up and service – the garden has surpassed our expectations and we receive many compliments on the design and execution of the project. We would thoroughly recommend Normark to anyone wishing to landscape their garden.’
