Harbourview Garden

Harbourview Garden

House & gar­den are intrin­si­cal­ly linked in this res­i­dence in Syd­ney’s east­ern sub­urbs. Tak­ing advan­tage of the prop­er­ty’s pre­mi­um har­bour­side views the gar­den embraces its con­nec­tion with the built struc­ture —a con­tem­po­rary home clad in mosa­ic tile, stuc­co, traver­tine and glass.

From the archi­tec­ture these out­door spaces flow seam­less­ly, with lay­ers of soft­ness intro­duced by-way-of shrubs, accent plants, grass­es and peren­ni­als togeth­er with an array of advanced trees for scale and maturity.

In the rear gar­den, an exist­ing Nor­folk Island Pine (Arau­caria Het­ero­phyl­la) is com­ple­ment­ed with an array of flex­i­ble and cre­ative planting.

While the gar­den cel­e­brates tex­ture and is most­ly green on green, Antho­ny does­n’t duck away from sea­son­al colour, espe­cial­ly in reds, oranges and whites such as the red- and white-flow­er­ing camelias, white gar­de­nias, Big Red’ aloes and the strik­ing fire­crack­er plants that warm up the house­’s neu­tral tones and crisp lines.”
