Brief: To create a courtyard for relaxation and occasional entertaining.
Solution: The opportunity came up for re-landscaping the existing courtyard when an existing Liquidamber tree with invasive roots finally died. Until now, the owners were reluctant to risk new landscaping with the widespread network of its root system lifting the existing paving.
We created a social circular area with a creative use of random black limestone paving and recycling the existing ‘old red’ brick pavers. The circular wall, with a rough rendered finish, doubles up as an informal seat for social gatherings and a retaining wall for the steep Eltham site. A backdrop screening of Waterhousea floribunda was planted to create privacy from a neighbouring window and a mixture of hardy natives and drought tolerant plants surround the area. Low voltage LED lighting was added to bring the garden to life at night.
