For this family living in an inner city terrace in Stanmore, having a pool was high on their priority list for some time. The challenge was how to include one in such a small space. The landscape design and construction process involved with this garden and swimming pool installation alongside Narellan Pools resulted in an oasis that is both practical for the family and glorious on the eye.
The petite plunge pool fits perfectly in the space and is surrounded by lush greens and pops of purple from the mix of planting supplied by Exotic Nurseries including Strelitzia Nicolai, Creeping fig and Philodendron Xanadu. The sawn bluestone tiles surround and soften the pool area.
The Buffalo Splitface cobblestones provide a textural element to the area adjacent to the pool which is large enough to be used practically as a car space or, once the car is moved, a fabulous area to entertain around a firepit. An outdoor space that really packs a punch, it was a joy to bring this one to life.
