Landscape Design & Development
After extensive alterations the clients required a garden that complemented their new home, was functional, minimised maintenance and catered to a young family.
- Interlocking pathways define the entrance, connecting the gate, front door and driveway.
- Paved areas contact and link the two decks of the house living areas.
- Contrasting textures are provided by the selection of all plants.
- Large semi-circle curves define the main lawn.
- Stone rings around the two specimen trees are a magnet for the children to play on.
"My wife and I embarked on a full renovation of our house on our 1004sq m section back in 2012. We employed Michael very early on in the process, before the build had even started, as we wanted to make sure that our house and landscape design complemented each other perfectly. We interviewed a number of landscape designers but were really taken by Michael’s clear communication and his responsiveness to all of our requests and requirements. He genuinely listened to what we wanted for our garden and came up with a design that we both loved and which complemented the house perfectly.
Even though the landscaping was at the very end of the project, Michael stayed in touch throughout the 10 month build and, as budgetary constraints kicked in and as issues arose such as drainage and ground levels, he worked with us to ensure that we still maintained the spirit and essence of the garden that he had designed for us. When it finally came time for Michael to begin his landscaping, the attention to detail and quality he showed in his planning was translated into the work of the Form and Foliage team.
Our landscaping was a large project involving the whole section apart from the house footprint which incorporated 2 decks, paved areas, a large area of lawn and many sq metres of planting. Michael co-ordinated and project managed the team faultlessly and always ensured we were kept informed.
The garden has been finished for almost a year now and it has been a real pleasure watching the garden grow and mature, and watching Michael’s design really work with our day to day lifestyle. I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael to anyone else and in fact I already have!"
