Last year we completed a beautiful full-property landscape of a home in Bentleigh. Recently we visited to capture some of the serene ambience experienced in the garden at dusk. The client has purchased some fish for the pond and the waterlilies have flourished in the gentle current from the flow of the creek.
Most important to the water feature and decking is the strategically placed lighting system, which highlights the steps, the pond and of course the hand-built waterfall. Additional lights focused on the Japanese maple at the side of the house not only enlivens an otherwise darkened area of the garden, but it also illuminates the maple’s striking colours. There is something magical, gentle and calming in the sound of a waterfall.
The client cannot wait to fulfil the potential of our design by adding an outdoor dining setting on the main deck area and a day bed and fire pit on the bottom decking pontoon, allowing them to truly luxuriate in their alfresco entertainment area.
