This contemporary home in Manly on Sydney’s Northern Beaches overlooks the ocean and Manly Beach. The rear garden was sloping and underutilized so the solution was a landscape garden design that created a flat terraced area for entertaining and a grassed play area for children.
New sandstone steps and retaining walls were built with planter boxes of mature Lily Pillys installed along the boundary for privacy.
A free-standing pergola was constructed on the upper grassed terrace with a base of decomposed granite to blend in with the native planting scheme at the rear of the property. Lovely water views can now be enjoyed from the previously unused garden area.
