Native Paradise, Wavell Heights

Orterra was engaged to design a native-inspired garden with plenty of entertainment value for this classic suburban Brisbane home. The overall design provides the clients with a variety of areas to relax and entertain. Whist screen planting offers much-needed privacy from the surrounding neighbours. This design allowed the new spaces to be tied in with the existing home and the already established native gardens.

The front garden was designed to soften the front entry to the home providing secluded pockets where the clients could sit and relax amongst the native flowers and wildlife.

This rear garden was to provide amenities for family entertaining especially during those hot summer months. The creation of a stylish pool and connected entertainment space allowed for great outdoor entertaining. It even includes all the necessary amenities such as BBQ, seating area, and bathroom. The continuation of the native plant palette creates a soft and colourful backdrop to this ample outdoor space. With a large grassy lawn which allows plenty of area for kids to run around.

As per our commitment to sustainability, we retained as much of the mature vegetation already present on the property as well as proposed new plants that were locally sourced, native and provided shade and biodiversity benefits where possible.

We are so happy to see the space come alive and are even happier to see the clients enjoying their beautiful new outdoor space. We have no doubt that there will be plenty of entertaining happening around here!
