This wonderful, cutting-edge, on-sell development on the Sunshine Coast gave me the opportunity to create a garden unique for the area: known for its Balinese-inspired landscapes, my brief to myself was not to do ‘Bali’.

A 100 metre driveway was planted in a stylised manner, with sculptural plantings to create points of interest along the drive.

The entrance gardens of Aloes, Bismarkia palms and Agaves have flourished in this tropical climate; so too the white and grey terraced gardens below. The client also responded with a dark charcoal exterior for their home, wide eaves and an exciting boardwalk-style pool and entrance, making this a really distinctive project.
