Other than the large Elm, the sloping front yard was a blank canvas surrounding this new contemporary home designed by Cox Architecture (winner of Malcolm Moir & Heather Sutherland award for residential architecture – ACT 2016). A simple palette of materials was selected fro this sharp contemporary design. Galvanised step terraces, backfilled with gravel, were used to create a path system & extensive native plantings add colour & texture. ABC Landscapes were the main contractor, with the steelwork provided by Still Standing Sheetmetal.

Based on our initial ideas, Paul provided us a design that was innovative, practical and value for money. He was very easy to work with, friendly and highly professional. We highly recommend him’.

'To say we are more then happy with the result is an understatement!...Paul considered every little detail and the end result is everything we hoped for and then some! We have no hesitation in recommending Paul to future clients'.

'We found Paul to be the perfect person to design our whole yard. Someone who at last listened to what we want to achieve…. When we were presented with the overall plan of what the whole garden would look like, we loved it. We could see what our “blank slate of a yard” would look like in the future. He discussed each section (with fantastic drawings) so we could visualise the end result.
