OUT WITH THE OLD
by Craige Matthews
the original garden
e owners had outgrown their current home so
they decided to renovate and extend it, which
included giving the landscaping a significant
makeover at the same time.
e garden had an established, centrally located
concrete pool and surrounding the home and garden
was lawn. ere were large African robinias and
overgrown shrubs along the back of the property,
with a large frangipani and jacaranda up front.
the client brief
e original, small bungalow dwelling was
undergoing renovation plus an extension was being
added along the southern boundary.
Craige Matthews was enlisted to ensure the
landscaping complemented the newly designed
home while incorporating existing elements such as
the pool and certain trees.
e garden was to be simplistic and low
maintenance, yet a space the whole family wanted
to be in.
e clients requested the design of new boundary
fencing and gates, a decked entertaining area, water
features in the front garden and private master
bedroom courtyard and a lawn area for the children.
