Dorrington Project 2020

Check out our recent garden makeover for these two Reservoir backyards. After some creative backyard solutions?  🕊️  Here we prepare a new development in Darebin ready for handover. The brief:

  • Design & construct 2 unique outdoor living spaces that encouraged indoor-outdoor flow.
  • Incorporate Australian native plants to encourage local wildlife within the space.
  • 'Filetti' Italian stone paving feature to add textural interest and warmth to the front entry. (Filetti stone also used within rear gabion bench seat for design continuity).

Both units required an expanse of permeable paving to assist with local stormwater retention, and substantial 6m3 of storage per dwelling. Mesh trellis was featured throughout the backyards - you'll notice the theme continues with the garden bench, shed cladding, and boundary screening throughout the gardens. Native Wisteria vine adds another layer of privacy as it grows and softens the space. Surrounding suburbs of Reservoir include Ivanhoe, Preston, Northcote & Thornbury.
