This 1880s cottage property in Central Bendigo is an excellent example of current urban garden design that maximises space and intimacy. An inaccessible parking space at the rear of the property was converted into a tiered pool area. Dated concrete pavers and walls were removed and replaced with a sandstone wall and steps using specially selected Yapeen sandstone. This design helps retain the privacy of the pool area. To create both a safe space as well as a functional one, a glass pool fence was built onto the stone wall. A tall custom made boundary fence was installed to ensure privacy from any neighbours and to screen the pool from the nearby laneway. To contrast the sandstone, 300 x 300 oyster marble sawn pavers in a stacked pattern were used to surround the pool. An al fresco patio area with oyster marble random paving completes the area. One of the special aspects of this garden space is the customised lighting. Garden lights are wired to four separate circuits and controlled by a hand held remote, allowing you many different lighting choices creating intimate areas or party modes.
