Location: Park Orchards, Victoria
Brief: To make the new formal house sit comfortably within its natural environment.
Solution: A formal use of flat mudstone boulders merged the large house with its surroundings, creating a level terraced area of large format Desert Sand sandstone pavers. Seating was cleverly constructed from the large slabs of rock creating an inviting and surprisingly comfortable ‘mudstone sofa’. Compacted Donnybrook pathways and large river pebbles complete the natural palette of materials used. The garden is predominantly mass plantings of native Mat Rush, Flax lilies, Banksia ‘Birthday Candles’ and Grevillea Moonlight shrubs. The large formal gates open up to a dominant water feature cosntructed from huge upright pillars of mudstone which have been core drilled to allow water to pump through. A very different approach to a formal garden has been created without a Buxus hedge in sight!
