Description

This low maintenance garden was design and constructed by Ocean Road Landscaping, with a design brief for a stone gathering circle, where the family could invite entertain friends and family.  It is tucked away in the privacy of the back yard with a colour pallet of the plants have been used in bands for a dramatic effect.  The plants are attractive to butterflies and birds and low on water usage.  As this house in in a high bush fire zone, planting was carefully positioned with this in mind.

Stone circle fire pit

Description

This recently renovated house designed by Robin Boyd Architect now has a landscape to match recently designed and landscaped by Ocean Road Landscaping.  The main feature of this garden is the stone circle fire pit, which acts as a gathering circle for this families social get together’s.  This garden makes use of some of the existing stone walls in the garden, and has been enhanced with hardy plants that will tolerate the harsh salt winds that come of the ocean on the surf coast.

As this garden matures, planting has been selected to snuggle around the stone circle fire pit, to make it private and enchanting.  Plants are maintained to ensure the view of Point Roadknight and Surfcoast are continued.

by Peter Shaw of Ocean Road Landscaping

We recently opened our own garden to the public through Open Gardens Australia and watched to see what people gravitated to. The answer was unexpected and it’s made me think a lot more about the relationship between children and natural spaces. Visitors, adults and children alike – were attracted to the bits specifically incorporated for our kids’ sake in our child friendly garden. If you’re like us, keen to encourage natural play rather than hours spent indoors in front of a screen, then you might find the following helpful.
