he Leighton beachside development
encompasses a stunning array of plants
and trees, contrasting gravel, and the
clean lines of raised planter beds and
different levels, to create a functional, interesting
landscape for the residents to enjoy and admire.
Succulents, native plants and coastal tolerant
trees watered with drip-line irrigation keep water
usage at a minimum, while providing colour, texture
and freshness to the intimate areas of garden.
The different heights of planting bring parts
of the garden up to eye level, so that it can be
appreciated from many different angles.
There are many places to sit and walk through,
and the pool area is fresh and inviting.
A massive Poinsiana and a huge Dracaena
draco are just two of the focal points of this
garden, surrounded by greenery and ordered
linear bands of exposed aggregate concreting,
and crisp white and grey planters.
Magnolias and Metrosideros fill the area
with perfume and colour, making it a great
place to relax, enjoy and live in.
For this project, Deep Green Landscaping
the LIAWA Best Overall Commercial Contractor
Award in 2011.
A combination of hard and soft
landscaping creates interest in the space.
