Shaw Landscape Group was invited to closely collaborate with Fairy Meadow clients to help them achieve a minimal, modern and formal landscape that complimented their contemporary house. Coming to us with a number of inspirational photos and an overall brief, we were able to quickly establish the look and feel of what these clients wanted to achieve with their landscaping. The north facing property which receives full sun also had existing elements which required consideration, such as a 1 metre high brick wall and exposed aggregate paths and driveway.
Playing with contrasting materials, colours and elements, Shaw Landscape Group installed a contemporary garden landscape. Steel planter boxes layered with unique textural plants such as Casuarina (Cousin It), Magnolia Teddy Bears for height (green brown undertones) and Alternanthera (Little red ruby) add a subtle pop of bright colour.
Dichondra repens (kidney weed) hugs the large offset steppers to create an attractive textural accent which helps to soften the hard concrete and steel garden edging. Premium quality Sir Walter Buffalo turf was also chosen to withstand the heat as a hardwearing, yet soft, drought tolerant grass variety.
