Peter from Peter Fry Landscapes talks about a recent blank canvas project.
This rural property in Okura was just waiting to be landscaped. With a blank canvas the client understood that landscaping was not just about putting in some plants and lawn.
With the benefits of a comprehensive concept plan all their needs were met and more. The unsitely water tanks were covered with stylish Verda timber decking and a wind barrier constructed using material and colour taken from the home.
The landscape has a distinct tropical dominance whilst using the integration of both New Zealand and Australian plants. A hot spot are the two Macrocarpa planter boxes or ‘fireboxes’ filled with orange Gazania for all year round colour.
Overall result: A landscape that will mature in beauty with time.
