Topia Landscape Design
Topia Landscape Design uses horticulture to create and manipulate the space you want to live in. Ranging from the new build site, an overgrown garden to a tired yard requiring a facelift. All sites hold an inspiration or two for me as a designer to play with, whether its surrounding architecture, borrowed views or that quirky, neglected existing garden element.
Understanding the Mid North Coast's subtropical nature and soil variances plays significantly in achieving both that immediate "look" and the long term matured garden "feel"
Our designs offer site solutions by horticulture which can reduce costs in numerous ways by removing Development Application requirements, reassessing neglected, forgotten plants to a 'now' glory or simply reinventing a long forgotten garden treasure.
Small space designs: on a balcony, in a courtyard and around the pool, requires an understanding of pot culture , individual plant performances and sensible, long term maintenance . Large garden designs require knowledge of spatial consumption by maturing trees, hedges and how horticultural elements, corridors and necessary lifestyle utilities can and do need to connect without leaving one completely overwhelmed by the progression of time.
All this and more with imagination and sensitivity toward ongoing sustainable garden practices.
Topia's designer works primarily in residential garden and special community projects.
