Beaconsfield Pde


The magnificent grandeur of this Italianate Victorian terrace clearly steered the design for the accompanying front garden. Traditional in style, the garden has a green plant palette with distinct layers of planting providing textural contrast. An oversized French antique pot, raised on a bluestone plinth, provides an opulent central feature for the space.

The property is located directly opposite the beach on Port Phillip Bay making plant selection particularly critical for this project. Robust plants, withstanding difficult conditions, were required to ensure the ongoing viability of the garden.

The piece de resistance of this classic-modern rear garden is the swimming pool, designed equally for both its functional and aesthetic properties. The black tiled lap pool was raised out of the ground with an infinity edge on two sides creating a stunning black reflection pool.
