We designed and built this backyard in Beecroft for a young family to maximise their time spent outside. With the existing backyard feeling quite dated, we undertook a complete landscaping project to transform the backyard from ‘old’ to ‘new’. Now complete with a pool, outdoor entertaining area with kitchen, a trampoline area and veggie garden, this backyard ticks all the boxes for this family who love nothing more than being outside amongst family and friends.
Working closely with Freestyle Pools who installed the large 10x4m pool with waterfall edge, this was the central feature of this backyard.
For the entertaining zone, the installation of a new pergola featuring recycled hardwood posts, a Colorbond roof and complete with down lights, a ceiling fan and heating panels, allows the family year-round entertaining. The soft grey tones of the silver travertine tiles contrast beautifully with the built in hardwood timber bench seats which form a casual poolside lounge area, and the lush outlook of greenery thanks to a range of plants including Magnolias, Philodendron Xanadu, Senecio cineraria to name just a few, all supplied by Exotic Nurseries in Dural.
Hardwood railway sleepers were used to create two Veggie boxes for the owner to house her range of herbs and veggies in a way that is both beautifully presented and easy to maintain and enjoy.
Additional features of this backyard include a dedicated clothesline area, screened off by a timber screen and lush planting, as well as a trampoline area for the kids at the rear of the backyard.
