City Oasis

Created April 2013


Only a five-minute walk from the big smoke in an area measuring 10m x 12m we managed to create a landscape with something for everyone. A decking area to lounge on, while overlooking a magnificent water feature – some people call them swimming pools!

When the temperature increases you can move down to the pool and cool off or swim a few ‘laps’ against the swim jets. Afterwards, lay your towel out on the timber bench to dry off in the summer sun. What next? Back to the decking and lounge for another martini, or back in the pool again. Maybe even pick some veggies for the night’s dinner or a game of totem tennis on the lawn.

  • Spotted Gum 90mm decking
  • Tessellated tiles
  • Spotted Gum timber bench
  • Ashlar pattern granite paving
  • Rooftop deck
  • Drystone walling
  • Sawn bluestone paving
  • Swim jets
  • Frameless glass pool fence
  • Drought tolerant Buffalo ‘Sir Walter’ lawn
  • Gardenia augusta ‘Florida’ and Pennisetum advena ‘Rubrum’
  • Syzygium australe ‘Hinterland Gold’ and Escallonia iveyi

In the evening, head up to the rooftop to enjoy the 360 degree views of the city skyline. If you’re lucky, someone will put on a fireworks display. Now that’s the life.
