This Toorak garden by award winning Philip Withers Landscape Design perfectly integrates the garden into the broader landscape whilst embracing the contemporary architecture of the home. The objective was to provide large framed views from the main living spaces and the designer chose to create a contemporary space that integrates exciting elements for dramatic visual appeal. A perfect selection of materials harmonizes with both the environment and those used in the construction of the home.
The garden features an array of plants and dramatic features so that there are interesting elements showcased at every turn. An eye-catching cascading water feature nestled into a soaring geometric structure can be seen from the living area of the home. There are vertical gardens of greenery, a colorful fountain, wispy bamboo and vibrant flowering shrubs. A brick wall and warm wood features enhancethe inviting ambiance. Carefully selected and placed sculptures add a charming touch, and the large expanse of green lawn fringed by trees provides privacy and heightens thesense of tranquility. Carefully placed outdoor lighting showcases the garden at night to its best advantage.The result is a wonderful space that can be enjoyed as much from inside the home as when entertaining guests outside.
