Issue 9 – Sydney Pool & Outdoor Design Magazine

The owners of this home wanted a functional, open-plan outdoor area where they could entertain family, while supervising their grandchildren as they play in the pool.

Insight Landscapes has made excellent use of retaining walls and timber screening to make the most of the space and create an area that is comfortable and usable for the owners and their family to enjoy.

The home was located on a steep slope and required easements; however, Insight Landscapes overcame the challenges presented to ensure the pool and entertaining area were built on the same level.

Insight Landscapes has incorporated products in a variety of colours and textures to give the area a warm, natural feel. Granite paving provides a neutral base to build upon with burnt red timber screening, brick retaining walls, and stackstone features in varying shades of grey. Native plants complement the area and are a low-maintenance option.
