2021 AWARD-WINNING GARDEN, AUBURN GARDEN LANDSCAPE DESIGN
A statement piece and an award-winning design; our Landscape design Auburn Garden won 2021’s Nic van Diemen Design Award! This stunning landscape is a timeless design which effortlessly ties the feature entryway, lush with drift plantings, together with the superb walkthrough to the rear terraced garden. The layering of greenery, succinct lighting strategies and high-quality finish in materials such as the Bluestone, Corten steel, Blue Mountain Ledgestone and warm timbers enhanced the harmonious sensorial continuity for our clients to enjoy for many years to come.
Our Landscaping Auburn front garden captures one’s attention with clean functional levels easily traversable with a sequence of floating Bluestone steps. The concrete formwork that held each step in place was shaped flawlessly to create the sense of visual freeness between each rise. The formwork also had a recess pre-built in to house the LED strip light under each floating step.
The centrepiece floating steps are adorned with delicate Dichondra argenta and two handsome flowering deciduous trees, Lagerstromia indica ‘Natchez’, provide shade and privacy to the frontage. Mixed perennials including the flowering Iris ‘Yellow Flag’ and Anigozanthos ‘Frosty Yellow’ provide softness and texture. At the top of the naturally sloping garden bed are sculpted Buxus and Westringia fruticose balls, anchoring the rest of the drift plantings to the steps.
Our Landscape design Auburn Garden takes inspiration from ‘Adorned by Nature’ guidelines which promotes lushness in planting textures. A large retaining wall in Blue Mountain Ledgestone with a Corten steel retaining wrap-around allowed for a level walkway against the house frontage. Stunning white egg pots contrast beautifully on the porch adjacent from the steps end. Leading from the Bluestone clad porch, a series of Bluestone steppers surrounded by green synthetic lawn wrap around the front side of house forming the side pathway.
The side walkway leads around the house via a warm timber composite deck and a smartly detailed yet simple hardwood timber pergola that provides cover, fragranced climbing greenery and privacy. In the rear garden, generously spaced Lilly Pillys sit behind delicate waterfalls of grey-green Dichondra argenta spilled over the retaining walls.
Broad leafed Monstera deliciosa and Xanadu philodendron created a luscious backdrop to the entertaining area. Finally, encompassing our Landscape design Auburn Garden all are the ever-beautiful climbers trained either on the walls or on vertical meshes binding together this pocket retreat. Landscaping Auburn Gardens was a work of love and dedication for our team at PATH.
