‘Farmhouse Camberwell’ was the original farmhouse in this area of Camberwell South.

A little over a year ago, the new owners undertook an extensive refurbishment and contemporary rear extension for their family to grow into and enjoy for many years to come.

The landscape design set to utilise all the outdoor space and create interaction with the garden.

The rear garden now includes a swimming pool and hard surfaced paved areas for entertaining, so maximising the front lawn was a key feature in creating a cool and green streetscape. Plants were selected for seasonal interest and to provide movement and colour in their changing forms.

Three concrete trough vegetable garden beds were installed in the North facing side garden, supplying produce year round.

Bluestone crazy pavers provide a relaxed, friendly feel to the hard surfaces and are all one level for kids to run, ride and scoot. The organic shape of the Bluestone pavers allowed for soft edges and additional planting outside the straight edged garden beds.

The garden aims to create a sense of fun and connection for this family of five.
