It’s time for our first room tour of 2016.  Today we are going outside to tour an elegant poolside garden on Sydney’s north shore.

The home belongs to Kylie, her husband and twin girls.  They moved in around 18 months ago and have gradually been renovating the home.  You can follow their progress on instagram.

The poolside garden features classic elegant landscaping.  A tall hedge screens the fence, and the lower box hedge frames the garden bed.  Three clipped topiary trees create a focal point inside the garden bed, and variegated foliage provides contrast.

The sandstone retaining wall has two waterfall spouts that spill into the pool.

Along the rear boundary is a seating area which is defined by square pavers with decorative white pebbles in-between. A couple of large trees provide welcome shade in the summer months.

There is a lovely contrast between the blue fully tiled pool, the sandstone pavers and the lush green foliage.

Frameless glass fencing ensures that the pool view can be enjoyed from all aspects of the garden.

Double hedging again frames the lawn area beside the pool.  The perfect spot to lie on a picnic rug in the dappled shade.
