A detailed overview of a proposed landscape recently designed for a Pelican Waters, Caloundra client.

Our client engaged Sunshine Coast and Brisbane landscapers,  Instant Greenscene to design a garden and living space to compliment Queensland’s outdoor entertaining lifestyle. The site overlooks the prestigious pelican waters golf course and the customer was eager to enhance and beautify the outlook from their rear deck. Entertaining and lifestyle were major considerations in the landscape design.

The garden design structured with low maintenance in mind, influenced drought hardy plant selections such as pandanus baptisii variegated to give striking accent in corners of the garden, yuccas, draceneas , cordylines, dianella silver streak, tradescantia (rheoe) and zoysia were used to give colour, texture, structure and sculptural aspects to the areas.

Garden lighting plays an integral role in bringing the gardens to life at night and creating a fantastic entertaining area. The incorporation of garden lighting and outdoor stereo speakers for the deck and in amongst the garden will create a directional entertaining atmosphere without blasting out the neighbours with music from inside the house. The use of a water fountain with delicate lighting designed to shimmering across the face of the pool will bring a gentle touch to the backyard which is over looked by the timber deck and bbq area.

Drought hardy sir walter turf was selected for the back yard to create a durable play area for the children. The dark green grass covering wrapping around the the deck and block retaining walls. A sitting area was introduced to the corner of the yard were a large tropical birch tree was incorporated to shade the bench seat set amongst day lillies and iris.  Tracheospermum Jasminiodes ( star Jasmine) trained up a trellis on a side wall of the house which when in flower will subtly fill the house with a sweet scent.

The side court yard was influenced by the importance  to maximize the use of natural light, breeze and functionality of a utility area for the washing line, rubbish bins and a small garden shed for mower, bikes, etc. The incorporation of a herb and vegetable/ fruit garden in pots and retained garden beds was added to the area to provided fresh herbs, vegetables and fruit for the family. Lemon trees, limes tree, orange, mandarin, bay tree, basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary,mint, parsley,  fennel were just some of the range selected.

Sante fe pavers paved through the outside utility area gives a practical and economical solution to the ground space. Drainage and automatic irrigation are also planned for this project. This landscape project is designed to be low maintenance, minimizing  requirements of  mowing, hedging, pruning, fertilising,watering, weed and pest spraying. Keep a look out for incredible photos of this project in the future.
