ALL NEW PATIO AND PATHWAY

This once dated garden in the Sydney suburb of Pymble now has a new lease on life with a formal yet contemporary design — and the owners couldn’t be happier. The first thing designer Troy Paschini and the construction team from The Labyrinth Garden needed to do was replace the driveway.

The existing clay-paved driveway not only looked dated, it was uneven where the paving sub-base had washed away. The old clay pavers and sand sub-base were replaced with a concrete sub-base and cobblestones. In fact, 190sqm of cobbles were laid — a massive task involving precision laying and mortaring.

 

THE FINAL LANDSCAPE DESIGN

To complement the new driveway, The Labyrinth Garden tiled all the pathways and the patio. For this they used basalt pavers which contrast beautifully with the new sandstone retaining walls. As this is a tiered garden design, the new retaining walls feature prominently so needed to be visually appealing as well as structurally sound. The Labyrinth Garden built the retaining walls from house bricks, which were then clad with 40mm thick sandstone flagging and capped with 400mm wide sandstone. The final but no-less-essential element of the design brief was to remove the outdated rock water feature which was overgrown with ivy and had not worked for some time due to inadequate waterproofing. The Labyrinth Garden excavated and removed this tired feature and in its place installed a bell water feature. Water trickles into the bell from a metal spout installed in the new sandstone wall that forms a backdrop to the water feature. The softscaping completes the picture. Magnolia ‘Little Gem’ was planted as a feature and then underplanted with Gardenia augusta ‘Radicans’. Gardenia augusta ‘Florida’ was used in the new garden bed above the water feature and Juniperus taxifolia var. lutchuensis was planted along the edges. Syzygium australe ‘Resilience’ was used to form a hedge and hide the void area under the patio while the shady areas are planted out with Rhapis excelsa and Liriope muscari ‘Evergreen Giant’.

Thanks to Troy’s thoughtful design, the planting works in complete harmony with the sandstone walling, cobbled driveway and basalt paving, creating an interesting interplay of textures and colours

COASTAL DESIGN IN THE BACKYARD

Home to television personality and funny man Wil Anderson and his partner Amy Williamson, this property has a hitherto undisclosed secret — a quirky coastal-inspired backyard designed for making the most of Sydney’s spring and summer weather.

The whimsical fish-shaped swimming pool is the focal point of the recently renovated rear garden. Before work began, the pool was dull, dated and surrounded by large granite boulders. Today it has clean edges and features charcoal-coloured concrete coping chosen to match the newly-installed paving. Picking up on the colour of the paving and coping, the existing timber fence was painted Woodland Grey.

 

A new deck was built using blackbutt. The same hardwood was used to clad the new raised garden beds and the retaining wall. The warm natural tones of the timber work with the modern charcoal colour of concrete pavers. Adding to the amenity of the backyard, an outdoor shower was built,a raised sun bed constructed around a large established tree, and the existing poolside cabana upgraded.

The plants were chosen for screening and colour contrast and include Bambusa textilis ‘Gracilis’, Liriope muscari ‘Evergreen Giant’, Philodendron ‘Xanadu’, Syzygium australe ‘Resilience’ and Viburnum odoratissimum. They give the pool area a refreshing tropical twist that works in tandem with the coastal aesthetic to create an open, inviting and relaxed space for outdoor entertaining, or for just unwinding after a hectic week at work.
