Landscape design and construction
Concept development and landscape work on an existing sloping garden that required a new retaining wall to level the section. The scope included providing access to the garden from the house, which did not exist due to extensive plantings with no pathway through them.
From a Nelmac design, the landscaping team extended the deck off the house, giving access to the garden, created a pathway, levelled the garden, creating a lawn for children to play on, and created a sunken patio area to give better outdoor living. The final design had a ‘wow’ factor to match the home.
A particular challenge on this project was to create a one-of-a-kind steel circular archway and dome pergola over the sunken patio.
