This recently purchased waterfront home required a pontoon for our clients to moor their soon to arrive boat. As they needed access to the water, Grotec’s design team created a series of terraces that easily allowed them to navigate the 2.8 meter height difference from the alfresco deck to the beach.
The four terraces each served a different purpose with the upper Terrace 1 being a new extended deck made from Grey Urban-line composite timber and adjoining planter boxes which softened the edges with flowering plants.
Terrace 2 included artificial turf which adjoined the planter boxes and the main garden canopied by one of the largest most beautiful Poinciana trees the Grotec team has ever seen. Terrace 3 was paved with travertine and led to a comfortable bench seat under the tree’s canopy and the pontoon gangway and boat. Terrace 4 was another paved area adjoining the beach and a perfect spot to fish or simply catch the breeze from..
All 4 Terraces were umbrella-ed by the beautiful, big Poinciana and this became the key feature for the entire design to work around. The stunning tree was under planted with a huge selection of shade loving bromeliads that offer a succession of colour throughout the year. The new composite timber decking replaced all the existing merbau to create a fresh and modern new look and tied in with the rest of the renovated home. All the gardens were irrigated and lighting installed to highlight the paths and gardens throughout the property.
