Family Garden – Cremorne

This major renovation showcases many of the skills required of a professional landscaper such as Ivory Gardens. Set in Sydney’s north shore on a quiet street in Cremorne, we transformed a sloping uninviting backyard to a multifunctional inviting space with all the practicalities a family home needs.

Starting in the upper balcony an existing tiled patio was replaced with timber decking with a primed pine balustrade to create an extension of the upper living area of the house by continuing the internal timber theme into the outdoors.

The lower gardens were tiered to create usable spaces on an otherwise sloped block and we made the most of the existing sandstone by repurposing it into the garden.

By levelling we created a flat lawn area as well as adding a retreat away from the house, a perfect shady spot to read a book on a hot day or the intimate setting for the adults to get away from the kids whilst entertaining.

The existing carport with a dated pitched roof was replaced with a double garage with plenty of room for both cars and some extra storage.

All construction was done in-house on this project- really showing our team’s versatility.
