A family retreat that respects its surroundings.

Thank you for working with us in making our beautiful garden. – Sophie & Byron


A GARDEN on the edge of a rainforest gully

The clients for this house appreciate and respect their everyday environment and ecology.  As a young family, they defy “normal” through choosing a unique forest retreat on a steep slope in Sydney’s northern beaches. The house, designed by Matt Elkan Architects, sits elegantly above the slope in a tall eucalyptus and she-oak forest, offering opportunities to spill out into the landscape. Productive gardens, liveable courtyards & built landscape elements use a restrained palette of building materials, grounding the house – and leading to adventures out in a revegetated landscape.

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.
