An Elegant Entrance
Location: Mt Eden, Auckland.
Project description: Landscape design and construction.
This design focused on creating a stylish entry for a traditional bungalow with a functional lawn space and a serviceable vegetable garden area at the rear of the house. Hedging species Eugenia and Photinia Red Robin were used for clean lines and privacy screening at the front of the property whilst Teucrium Fruticans and Camellia Sasanqua add a more traditional feel in the concrete plastered planters framing the house. Exposed concrete pathways featuring a decorative stone add warmth and texture and a custom wrought iron entrance gate completes the classic feel to this bungalow style home. Greens and reds were chosen for the planting colour palette to complement the warm tones of the house and cedar slating used throughout.
