CLIENT BRIEF

Bursting with creativity, Kindy Korner Childcare Centre in Unanderra presented us with a landscape concept plan to makeover their existing outdoor play area. The plan incorporated a number of fun & inspiring learning-based spaces using a variety of hard and softscaping materials to create a unique play environment the kids can learn in and enjoy.

OUR APPROACH

Drawing inspiration from the concept plan, the team introduced an earthy colour palette with the use of sandstone logs for a yarning circle, pebbles for a dry river bed, timber logs for balancing beams, as well as a meandering ‘bike track’ made from soft fall rubber. 

An oversized chalkboard for outdoor learning was then introduced, followed by a new sandpit, bamboo maze and a ‘working’ kitchen with running water to encourage water play. Overarching the dry river bed, the team installed a custom designed bridge made from Spotted Gum. 

A brand new deck was installed made from a no maintenance composite material that won’t splinter, or carry any harmful exposed fixtures. This was paired with steps carved into a log for easy access to the deck. Native grasses were installed to the garden areas mixed with bluestone steppers, cobblestone edging and recycled sandstone ‘crazy’ paving. Corten Steel planters create a space where the kids can plant a new herb garden. Artificial turf throughout the shaded areas, mixed with Zoysia was laid to green up the space.
