Modern Classic

Created in November 2009


A classical styled landscape with a modern edge. Sawn bluestone paving – a Melbourne favourite since John Batman’s days – sets the classical theme, but with the modern finish of square edge sawn bluestone capping in the sunken terrace area.

The swimming pool and adjacent lawn has created hours of summer fun for the two teenage boys in this family.

  • 6 x 4m fully tiled swimming pool
  • 400 x 400mm sawn bluestone paving
  • Bluestone bullnose pool coping
  • Drought tolerant Buffalo ‘Sapphire’ lawn
  • Ornamental Pears
  • Syzygium ‘Hinterland Gold’
  • Camellia sasanqua
  • Dieties grandiflora (Spanish Iris)
  • Oak-leaf Hydrangea

Framed by ornamental pears, the sunken terrace includes a water feature with a sheer descent waterfall – another modern influence.
