At the recent Landscaping Victoria Industry Awards, we were presented Gold in the category of Residential Landscape Construction $75,000 – $150,000. The design completed by Studio Alba, included a small central swimming pool, a pool pavilion with closed in back wall featuring a mix of concrete render & stone cladding, outdoor kitchen & at the other end of the pool a small grass area & extended paved area around the side.

A custom curved black powder coated steel rod pool fence was also installed to separate the pool area from the alfresco. The same curve of the pool was referenced for the pool fence.
The fully tiled swimming pool complimented by the beautiful light Alba granite crazy paving around the pool for the expanse of the pool area only, then contrasting to a large format Cinza limestone paving for the remaining solid area.
For the pavilion we concealed the 5-degree colorbond traydeck roof with a 3 sided raised parapet wall clad in cement sheeting painted black, then clad on top with vertical hardwood timber battens for feature.

For the remainder of the pool fence on the pool terrace we installed a frameless glass barrier with a gate at either end & feature black aluminum pool fencing through the garden bed sections.
We then framed the border of the 2 exposed sides of the boundary with pleached waterhousia tree planting, a feature crepe myrtle tree at either end of the garden bed & underplanting with a mix of westringia spheres, arthropodiums & lambs ears. The end result a stunning & functional backyard equipped for all year round use.
