Stalking a dream

I was stalking in the Melbourne recently when I can upon two apartments for sale. The building, the gardens, so beautiful. What a dream ... and they are. You see I'm stalking computer generated renderings. Very good renderings I might add.

"Envisioned by architectural developer Orchard Piper, Huntingtower Road offers beautifully proportioned homes in the heart of Armadale. In collaboration with esteemed architects Jolson and landscape architects Myles Baldwin Design, this rare property comprises ten finely detailed homes immersed in greenery."

Sigh. Now if only they look as good after they are built and sold (don't choke on the price) and the new owners move in with their own pieces of furniture. For now though I can dream. For sale here and here while they last.

Sydney sandstone

Ease and elegance, sophistication and stylish simplicity. The hero of the landscape design is the sandstone, walls, steps, pavers, referencing the outcrops of this golden stone seen throughout the Sydney area.

A tale of two gardens

Two grand old homes in Sydney, two gardens full of delight. One, an entertainer's garden, sits on the harbour's edge and has an almost Mediterranean feel with stone and whitewash. The other, a green escape, cascades down a steep slope with a hint of mysterious rainforest. Both beautiful, both inspiring, both by Bates Landscapes.

Small city garden with big impact

The downside of living inner city is often outdoor space is very limited. This Bondi, Sydney house has only the tiniest of backyards, more courtyard than wide open spaces. That didn't stop design and construction design-it landscapes from creating a perfectly formed oasis complete with jewel-like plunge pool. So many ideas to inspire your small space gardening.

Morocco on a Sydney rooftop

The view may be of the Sydney skyline but this rooftop garden is all about a holiday passion. The owners had fallen in love with the unique architecture and energy of Marrakech on their travels and asked landscape architects Secret Gardens to create a little piece of their Morocco dream for them. A private retreat for family and friends filled with memories of a faraway land.
