Our great clients in Frankston South love their new pool side revamp, the new outdoor space is ready for warm summer days.
Working alongside Genus Landscape Architects, we helped to transform the existing pool with fresh hard and soft landscaping including brush fencing, installing a spa, spa decking, corten steel panel walls, bamboo panels, new plants, drip line irrigation and landscape lighting to finish the landscape design all off.
The steps of the works performed by Coastal Creations Landscaping are listed below:
1. Spa dig out
2. Constructed retaining wall around the perimeter of the deck and around the spa
3. Laid the concrete slab for footing for the spa
4. Put spa in place
5. Built a sub floor around the spa, allowing an area for a trap door to access the spa
6. Laid spa decking
7. Installed corten steel panels around the spa and along the pool area.
8. Filled the spa
9. Installed bamboo panels to the garden shed
10. Took out old unusable soil from the garden beds and refilled them with clean organic garden blend soil.
11. Installed drip line irrigation
12. Installed lights in the garden
The corten steel panels are sold as black sheets and over time will rust beautifully creating a rustic wall around the spa that provides both protection and privacy.
Bamboo screens are a great way to hide garden sheds and create softness and relaxation in your landscape design. We planted bamboo in the garden bed just in front of the bamboo panels which will grow quickly creating softness and privacy in the pool area.
Many thanks to our amazing clients for spoiling us whilst we worked at your property. Thanks again to our great team for helping to create this beautiful landscape transformation in Frankston South.
We are currently working on a custom built outdoor dining table for these clients, so stay tuned! The reclaimed wood we are using is beautiful.
We recently completed a side path landscaping makeover for a lovely house in Mt Martha on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria. Our clients are getting their house ready to sell and wanted to transform their side path into a space that looked great and was easy to access.
A modern landscape design path was chosen that was low-maintenance and allowed our clients to add their own plants.
The project involved removing the old wood edging and constructing a new retaining wall edging to hold the path toppings in place and create a garden bed.
Next a bamboo screen was installed to cover the neighbours garage wall and create a feature wall which could be viewed from the main bedroom. A side gate was also installed which was constructed using cyprus paddle pop pickets.
The ground was levelled out and weed mat was laid down. The garden bed was filled with black mulch topping and golden beach screenings was laid over the side path walk-way area.
Lastly 40 x 40 cm square charcoal pavers were placed on the top of the screenings.
Our lovely clients will be adding their own plants to the garden bed and bringing colour to the bamboo screen feature wall by adding their own large planters and filling them with their favourite plants.
We think the space looks great! All the best with selling your house guys!
We recently transformed our clients side yard into a private and low-maintenance personal sanctuary in Mornington.
The original vision for the area was to create a space with
- Low levels of direct sunlight to safe guard our client against strong sun rays
- Low maintenance garden and lawn
- Greater privacy as one of the fences was adjacent to a walk-way
- A feeling of a personal and private sanctuary, but also large enough to host family and friends
The solution to our clients vision was
-Removal of the old pergola and replace it with a new, larger pergola
-To construct a second pergola large enough to provide shade for a large lounge suite
-Laying down synthetic grass which is low maintenance, visually attractive and looks and feels real
-To build a wrap around raised garden bed with drought tolerant plants
-Insert bamboo screens for added privacy and visual aesthetics
-Insert a low-maintenance water feature to enhance the spaces tranquil feel
Overall the project went as planned and now our client has a fresh slate to add his personal touch. Our client can't wait to sit on his lounge and gain inspiration for his writing.
We love landscaping on the Mornington Peninsula and love creating a special outdoor space for our clients to relax in.
