On a quiet stretch of the Mornington Peninsula, a large private garden has been developed overlooking Western Port and Phillip Island.
The garden has achieved its purpose, providing a sculptural, private retreat that sits comfortably in its bush-coastal setting.
A palette of native Australian, and locally indigenous plants has been used, incorporating existing feature trees and supplementing as required to frame desired views and create habitable microclimates.
Informal geometry, natural materials and a considered arrangement of plants have been adopted to create drifts of seasonal floral colour in lime, ochre and reds, and year-round foliage interest in silver, blonde and a spectrum of greens.
The landscape architect, contractor and client have worked closely together over a number of years, to the benefit of the garden.
