Classical Garden design by Living Colour Landscapes
Beautiful established Eucalyptus trees and exotic deciduous trees added a cathedral like presence to a large North Shore property in Killara, NSW and formed the bones of the garden design.
The garden was redesigned by Living Colour Landscapes around the existing house, designed and built in the 1940's which lent itself to a classical and romantic format with sweeping hedges of box and topiary planting at strategic points along the pathways.
Outdoor spaces or rooms were created with taller hedging plants such as Syzigium and Murraya to echo the home's architectural elements and to create backdrops for colorful sculptural plants and a large variety of native and exotic grasses.
Autumn is when this garden is at its most colourful with bronzes, blazing clarets, yellows and oranges set against the tapestry of greens.
