Private Residential, Toowoomba

Category : Residential

Location

The site is located on the edge of the range in Toowoomba.  This property is set back into the hill and has spectacular views of the Lockyer Valley including Table Top Mountain.

The Client's Brief

The clients needed a landscape design that would accommodate the needs of a growing family as well as easy to maintain.

Features

The interface between the property and the street is defined by a series of planted terraces along the boundary line.  A sense of formality is achieved by a clipped hedge at the tope of a retaining wall while more naturalistic planting present to the interior space.  An entrance arbour featuring an overhead structure and wet walls to each side of stairs provides a dramatic entrance to the property.

A sweeping lawn wraps around the front of the house before joinging a substantial turfed platform that takes fall advantage of the views on offer.

A final raised platform works as a recreation area housing a wet edge pool and tennis court.  Large format sandstone pavers and manicured turf provide a crisp look and practical surface.

A series of low stone terrace walls, steps and decorative gravel form a winding path system that leads to elevated vantage points on the north/east facing slope offering breath-taking views among low border planting.
