“Garden is looking fantastic … the pool area has been a favourite” – Sharon & Mal

living on the edge of a lagoon

Even just a half hour drive from Sydney, the project feels like a coastal town retreat.  The house opens up to the sky and the land reaches down to a forested lagoon. The clients, generous and social, desired a strong connection between their home and outdoors and the opportunity to gather with neighbours along the creek frontage. The landscape design embodies this wish simply.  A modest but sculptural plant palette extends over the site and spreads into planting boxes on the upper levels. The pool area extends from the house towards the creek, complementing the house and garden with a sleek suite of materials and visually unobtrusive safety fencing. The owners “pinch themselves every day” as they enjoy their indoor and outdoor spaces. The result is admirable, being a finalist in the “Sustainable House” HIA NSW  GreenSmart Building Award in 2018 (Lawson & Lovell Building Services) and featuring in design magazines and weekly lifestyle newspapers.

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.
