Alphabetical Plant Listing

Urban Retreat


Once a tricky, sloping, poorly used site, this area has been transformed into a highly functional garden and pool that has become the hub of the family's entertainment all year round. Combining modern design, contemporary quality artwork and a simple plant palette including upright trees and low growing Mondo Grass, Creative Outdoor Solutions has perfectly converted every inch of this small urban garden into a stunning retreat. The amazingly decorative corten steel light feature, 'Waratah', is from Lump Sculpture Studio, a wonderful way of adding interest, life and light to what would be a dull wall or fence.
