Deck & Pool Surround Renovation – Coorparoo

by Chris Gill, September 7, 2015

This majestic Coorparoo property was well positioned to take advantage of cool Summer Breezes and an enviable view of the cityscape, but its backyard needed a renovation to re-purpose its space and unlock its full potential.

Project Brief:

When Lifestyle Landscape Design & Construction where approached to design and create this space, it was evident that the large backyard was lacking a purpose and was tired.

What we achieved:

  • The previously unused space under the deck was transformed into a casual outdoor entertaining area perfect for relaxing, reading a book or entertaining friends. Plus, we planted a beautiful trellis at the side of the house to shield the entertaining area from the harsh Western sun.
  • Upstairs the existing  verandah was revamped and the design was chosen to reflect the new hardware.
  • Stairs were added off the verandah to add access to the backyard.
  • The old swimming pool was given a makeover with old pavers lifted, replaced and extended with natural stone tiling.
  • We also incorporated new vegetable gardens, a block wall at front and side of house.
  • Soft landscaping completed the look and featured a timber clad shed installed underneath the deck.
