West Rolleston

 

 

 

Brief

Client have a preference for lush green gardens with emphasis on screening and plants that provide seasonal interest all year round. With a large backyard, small islands are proposed to break up the expansive lawn, and at the same time, create focal points for viewpoints from the interiors.

 

With an inclination towards succulents, and heat loving plants, the plant palette is geared towards incorporating elements within the garden and the islands. Their love for berries have led them to planning a berry house at the side of the backyard. Esapliered fruit trees line the fences, breaking up the long block of fence, while being productive.

 

At the front, a mixture of evergreen and deciduous small and large shrubs make up a key feature, with seasonal colors and colored foliage, popping up across the bed. Two beautiful maples take centre stage, whilst surrounded by a vibrant mix of colors throughout the year.
