Waiheke Paradise

We were proud to be awarded the following Landscapes of Distinction Awards for this garden:
SILVER - Landscape Design
SILVER - Landscape Construction
SILVER - Landscape Horticulture

The fusion of coastal New Zealand and Tropical Island Holidays are the inspiring factors to this design. By creating an oasis that is sympathetic to the original landscape, this garden aims to nestle the towering beach house back into its surrounding landscape.

Waiheke Island stone, rocks, boulders, stone sleepers and hardwood have been carefully crafted to portray a paradise-like atmosphere to the house whilst in keeping with a coastal colour palette - The Colours of Waiheke.

The garden incorporates a roof top garden that is situation on top of the existing garage, an extension of living space that is great for entertaining. The outdoors living room features retractable sliding doors, louvers and an outdoor fireplace that creates a natural flow of indoor to outdoor living space. 

The overall visual effect is Coastal Hauraki Gulf with hints of tropical South Pacific islands - an emulsion of the tropical oasis and the iconic kiwi bach. Sticking to a neutral colour palette and low maintenance coastal plants, this garden aims to celebrate the beach and reduce the suburban look of the house. 

The garden also acts as a link between the house and the ocean. It's a natural transition that gradually meanders its way up to the house with organic elements of contours, plants and rocks that create a naturalistic look.

Client Testimonial:
"The quality of the workmanship during construction was exceptional, with sensitive placement of local rock, the clever creation of 'stone' steps, ideal plant selection for the local conditions and thoughtful placement of palms to enhance privacy without compromising the view"
