Hard to believe, but true – the homeowner of this property, located in Northridge, a suburb of Sydney, had neglected the garden area for years. Then he turned to a specialist and landscape architect Ken Pattinson and his staff proved that with enough imagination they can create a beautiful and creative landscape design despite the sloped terrain.
Creative landscape design which combines the individual elements
The company came up with a creative landscape design and constructed the garden on three levels. First, the terrain was secured against landslide, followed by three individual terraces which were covered with natural stone slabs. A staircase connects the different levels of the terraces and leads to the house. Two small ponds with water plants make the garden nature appealing and very attractive to the lovers of peace and quiet. The paving stones turn into a wooden deck where two sun chairs invite for sunbathing. The clear division of the individual zones is very beneficial especially for slope gardens. Privacy is assured thanks to high hedge plants. The individual design elements fit together perfectly – and everyone who wants to create a modern garden on a slope terrain, can take inspiration from it.
Creative landscape design – the tips from the pros
For a successful and of course, original and creative landscape design you need to consider the tips of the professionals. It is very important to prevent a landslide. If the inclination is not too strong, a gabion can help. Consider to use concrete for the garden – they are more stable and are made to last. Terracing separates the garden visually and allows easier gardening – it is possible to have a lawn on the first level and a cozy seating area on the second one.
