The pool area and shed to the rear of this Strathmore property were looking out of date. The owners had plans for a high-end make-over and asked us to carry out the works. Out with the terracotta, in with contemporary bluestone. Details like a seamless drainage gap in the paving around the pool, glass safety fence combined form with functionality. A shady new pergola and colour scheme gave the old shed a lift. Raised beds and new plantings alongside the new dining area helped link it all together.
