The client brief for this Mt Martha landscape design was extensive (but achievable): child-friendly, accessible, functional, considerate of viewlines and architecture, enticing, productive and attractive. This split-level Mediterranean style home’s landscape was a blank canvas positioned on a decliningblock with Bay views. The first floor decking was re-designed to provide direct access to the back yard and maximize the viewlines whilst overlooking the (what was to become) stunning garden. Over several retained levels, this landscape design incorporating a ‘hidden’ veggie patch, expansive level lawn area (wintergreen couch) and ground-level seating and playground area. A selection of drought-tolerant succulents and coastal plants as low-level plants complement the home’s style perfectly.

Smart Landscapes design and deliver enticing, quality landscapes that enhance and complement your home. Mt Martha, Mornington Peninsula, Bayside, Melbourne.
