precinct accommodates a dining table and a couch
setting with space to move about.
With the 830sqm block sloping considerably
to the back and sideways across the block, Kerri
addressed site difficulties by using the pool – by
Exclusive Pools – to help retain the level along the
rear and side. This created a flat area between pool
and house for a lawn area, as did walls to the south
side of the pool shell, which help to disguise the
shed and allow levels to the southern side to be
retained for the existing trees and cubby area.
Trees help maintain an established look and
offer vertical scale, including narrower planter
boxes, planted with tall narrow trees to open up
the space. The wisteria arbour to the alfresco
creates a beautiful alternate entrance to the rear
garden/alfresco. Kerri says the mature wisteria
will create privacy from the neighbour’s windows,
which overlook the space.
The result is a homely, relaxed classic family
garden. In a year or two, when the planting has
established, it will be very lush, green and private.
