2009 Landscaping Victoria Awards of Excellence
Residential Landscape Construction up to $75,000
This Balinese inspired hideaway started as an ordinary suburban sloping backyard lawn. Now, stone pavers, bamboo screens, water features and a thatched roof hut built simply from a kit combine to create an Asian-inspired meditation retreat.
This award-winning design has been featured in Backyard & Garden Design Ideas magazine, and also a double-page spread in Melbourne’s Herald Sun ‘Home’ liftout.
