Freemans Bay

2022 Garden 5 - Freemans Bay


Design Brief

Franklin Road, a special project designed for an architect (MAUD Design) and her family in conjunction with the modern, renovation/extension to the beautiful heritage villa. Making the most out of the 170 sqm rear urban garden area, the clients wish list included a pool, cooking and entertaining, growing vegetables/herbs and retaining some lawn.

Decisions around surfaces and hard landscaping for the whole site were based on adding warmth and avoiding severe edges between spaces. Texture, form, colour  and suitability established the basis of the planting palette

Design: Rachael Farthing and Sandii McDonald, Babylon Gardens
