 Steep terraced garden
Gooseberry Hill - August 2013

Design by Loretta Kearnan - Think Green Landscapes

This was a very steep garden with extensive engineered retaining walls required to create usable and functional spaces. The rock batter along the front of the building sandpad was removed and reused at the front of the garden to really show off these beautiful large rocks (some well over 1 ton in weight) that had mostly been buried for years.

The client also had a problematic pool area that looked badly dated with an out of level fibreglass shell and no entertaining space around the pool. We realigned pool fencing to include the existing deck into the area along with extending the other end and creating a better connection with the house by using glass fencing in some areas. We also installed modern bullnosed pool capping and poured permeable paving to resolve the ongoing drainage problems around the pool.
