Our construction team completed this project we designed in Shelly Beach, Manly in February. The balustrade was being installed this week which gave us the perfect opportunity to grab a few progress pics. Whilst the planting is obviously still young, the garden is settling in well.
We were engaged by our clients to completely redesign this steep water-front garden. The entire existing landscape was a mass of Lantana and collapsing sandstone walls. We completely stripped the site back to a blank canvas and implemented a landscape design featuring a series of sandstone terraces with timber stairs winding in between. Hardy coastal shrubs were a must in the landscape design due to amount of salt, sun and wind the garden is exposed to.
Sandstone dry-pack walls were installed to create terraces throughout the garden.
A series of Spotted Gum stairs wind throughout the terraces. The timber has been left untreated to turn a beautiful silvery grey.
Sandstone stairs which lead up to a circular lounging area, surrounded by low hardy coastal plants.
