Tropical Persuasion

The clients wanted a lush, tropical style garden with lots of colour and variety. Working with the existing pool shell, Twill architectural concrete pavers were used for the coping units as well as the immediate pool surrounds. New waterline tiles were also selected to enhance the colour of the pool water giving a refreshed, new look. Additional surrounding areas were paved in La Roche limestone to offer texture and character to the area. The existing patio was also redesigned and paved in La Roche limestone to flow from inside the house out to the pool with an upper level terrace created as a place to relax overlooking the pool and surrounding gardens. To achieve the lush green effect typical of a tropical style garden, mass planting of species with colourful foliage with various heights and textures was carried out. The light colour of the La Roche limestone pavers contrasts perfectly with the bold, colourful planting palette. The existing sandstone path was also maintained working in seamlessly with the new limestone pavers. The path meanders its way through the garden past focal points at strategic locations showcasing various garden art.

The end result is a modern, renovated pool and a lush garden that has created a very relaxing space for the clients designed for lazy weekends.
