Landscape Design & Construction
Assimilating our clients desired to revitalise their family frontage of 25 years with functional Japanese influence resulting in this stunning transformation of Corinella’s front garden.
The enhanced street appeal, additional security and upcycling of materials done by PATH are in compliment to the history of the homeowners and their garden’s fresh new beginnings.
The entry and automated driveway gate are in the same black steel design cohesively tying the build forms colour palettes together. A new 2m high timber paling fence on the left-hand side provides additional security from the adjacent public space.
Hugging the front boundary is a new front fence with 300mm high walls and black steel ‘blade’ infills set between pillars rendered to match the home.
Entering through the pedestrian gate transports us to a lush space speckled with deep greens, dapples of red foliage and consciously re-purposed rock boulders. Many of the original established trees were also retained to add a richness of history to the garden. The layering of plants and the addition of six Japanese Maple trees completed the soft planting artistically.
The dark charcoal of the concrete pathways together with the black mulch accentuated and meandered one’s views through the curving walkway. The step treads leading up to the front door are also gently emphasized with thin steel join strips.
The extra wide driveway doubles as both a drive-in drop-off zone and as a show space for the client’s car collection.
At dusk, the magic begins with the garden lighting up via the smart home system.
The integrated pathway lights, step lights and garden bed up-lights bring a new exquisiteness to the unique landscape every evening. For the homeowners inside, the LED lights enhance the tranquil ambiance and deliver additional security in their sanctuary.
