from the editor

With this edition of the magazine, we have introduced some changes. To begin with, we have changed the name to Outdoor Design — this is to reflect our continued focus on beautiful, professionally designed gardens and outdoor spaces. We’ve also broadened our content to include the work of Australia’s leading landscape architects, who join ranks with the many well-regarded landscape designers who have long been featured in our pages. And we’ve decided to place a spotlight on the architects, designers and landscapers themselves, so you can see the professionals behind the stunning gardens featured. What remains the same is the diversity and calibre of gardens showcased within the magazine. In this edition they run the gamut, from bespoke suburban retreats and bushland-inspired sanctuaries to inner-city rooftop havens and urban oases, and…

resort on the range

On a picturesque large block in Wonga Park, situated on the cusp of the Yarra Ranges in Victoria, landscape designer David Franklin knew he needed to create something “epic”. He decided to go the resort route, creating a garden that would, he says, “Make you question why you would ever need to go on holidays again.” “This is a big property, hence it had to have a grand entrance. There is a big, sweeping driveway bordered with a classic country-style planting palette and Castlemaine slate stonework that we hand-chipped. Moving to the rear garden, I flipped the switch, creating a modern resort-style entertaining area and a monster swimming pool and spa for major wow factor.” The rear garden offers myriad places to relax or entertain, starting with a new extension to the…

creativity counts

What led you to landscape design? From a young age I was given many opportunities to work with some amazing landscape designers. The experiences they exposed me to opened my eyes to the many possibilities within the realm of landscape design and construction. Once the seed was planted, I was keen to take the next step. To do this, I found myself a landscape apprenticeship. It was here I learnt and honed the skills of the landscape trade and began to work out what made me passionate about garden design and how to harness my ingenuity to create gardens that met the client’s brief. What makes for good design? I come into each new design project with the goal of maximising the space and increasing its functionality, all within the constraints…

the good life

Having renovated their home, the owners realised the garden now seemed disconnected from the house. As the property had stunning Sydney city views and an existing swimming pool — both of which were underutilised — this formed the platform for the new lifestyle-enhancing design. “Our clients wanted the garden to seamlessly blend with the house. They also asked us to create areas that facilitated comfortable entertaining and resort-style relaxation,” says Phil Antcliff, co-director of Fifth Season Landscapes. “This included activating the lower garden area that was relatively unused and updating the poolside spaces to incorporate seating and lounge areas for all-day use. Both spots were relatively disjointed, so having ease of access between each was also key.” The design team, led by design manager Levi Carter, developed the initial concept and then…

lifestyle solutions

How did you get your start? My initial interest came from growing up in a house where outdoor entertaining seemed to happen on a weekly basis. I was intrigued by how we used the outdoor space around our home, especially when we had friends over. I found that the landscape industry allowed me to explore and enhance the way that people spend their time at home. I also found that this was a common interest between myself and my business partner, Jack Hayes. We created Fifth Season Landscapes to deliver creative design and high-quality construction. What is your design philosophy? Our philosophy has always been to create a space that reflects and enhances the way our clients want to live their lives. A well designed garden should complement the people that…
