Return to Eagle Bay – Meelup Road, Dunsborough

We were excited to revisit this garden as it was a classic blank canvas when we started. The clients really wanted to draw back the wildlife and to recreate some privacy in a more orderly manner. Four years on…and look how the garden has blossomed.

The gates have settled in to the county setting and have developed their rusted patina, tying in perfectly with the red laterite path and corten treads. Plantings have filled out the front garden beautifully, displaying a variety of flowers throughout the year. The entrance pathway meanders through with interesting leaves welcoming and guiding you up the large steps. Clipped native hedges now softly screen the private garden beyond.

Return to Eagle Bay – Meelup Road, Dunsborough

A freshly mown lawn gives space for the children to play just as planned. It is now surrounded by contrasting hedges neatly clipped. These green walls also complete the secluded shower. Anyone game will have a wonderful outdoor experience!

There is still plenty of opportunity to admire the drystone granite work, which was the main feature at the beginning, but it is now softened by the mature plants. The raised garden bed next to the alfresco is a perfect example. Here the plantings now completely screen the adjacent fence line and bold leaf shapes are spilling over towards the decked entertaining area. You can really sit back and relax amongst the plants and the birdlife!
