Whale watching, ocean views and smart landscaping …

As gardening novices based in Hong Kong, we greatly appreciated Lindy’s clear and thoughtful plans for our outdoor areas – Charmaine & Charles

An ocean-facing GARDEN on a SLOPE

For design inspired clients, a commanding view over the ocean set this design story in motion. The house formed three distinct landscape spaces: a middle courtyard and front and back slopes. Our delightful design challenge was to recognise and give form to these spaces.  A textural landscape canvas now extends down from the house over a steep coastal slope.  An organising spine extends along the north boundary, and pragmatic screen plantings establish privacy along the north and south boundaries.  Roof plantings sway at the ebb and flow of the coastal breeze and connect the house to the site’s original heath vegetation (pre-settlement). It’s the kind of place that is difficult to leave.

Would you like to work with me?

Hi, I’m Lindy

Look forward to meeting you 🙂

Do you wish and wish for your own private outdoor retreat to escape the “busyness” of everyday life? A sunny spot to drink a cup of coffee in the morning before rushing out the door; an outdoor living space to sit and share stories with your favourite people over dinner at the end of the day …. if only you could work out what to do in your backyard to make it the place to be!

I love working with people and watching their thinking expand into outdoor living space, creating special connections to their individual places.

Let’s create outdoor living spaces to suit you and set the stage for the great moments in your everyday life.
