This lifeless backyard with a recently built Granny flat and untidy pebblecrete pool, lacked functionality and family-friendly appeal. Our Oak Flat clients provided a simple brief to makeover the pool area and create safe levelled paths, with easy access into the granny flat for the whole family.


To create an entrance to the Granny flat, Shaw Landscape Group installed a ‘breakout’ deck with longline steps using environmentally friendly composite decking. Ekodeck was chosen for its maximum durability, and resistance to fading and warping.

Shaw Landscape Group then levelled the yard to create a number of safe walking areas around the pool and installed attractive tumbled and sanded marble pavers. By installing the paving all the way from the pool area through to the clients undercover patio, we were able to achieve a consistent, family-friendly outdoor dining space. Exotic bamboo screening and garden beds with green foliage were planted to help break up the hard surfaces and create an enjoyable summer fun, poolside family oasis.
