For a lovely family in Cranbourne South! 💚⁠Can't wait to see this being built! Absolutely love the materials chosen and how contemporary it feels whilst being "homey" and not "industrial".⁠Loved being able to present it to my clients in 3D as it enabled them to view the differences created by the use of different colours and materials and then make an informed decision on which ones suited them best!⁠There are some unique plants which I've not presented in previous designs but have been dying to use. Can't wait to source them and get them planted making this frontscape amazing, not to mention the custom steel artwork and letterbox currently being worked on! ⁠So watch this space!!! 💚 ...

#SomethingDifferent and cool! 💚The Japanese have been producing wood for 700 years without cutting down trees. In the 14th century, the extraordinary daisugi technique was born in Japan.

It was unusual in the sense that everywhere else I'd seen cobbles used, seemed to keep to one pattern and one colour.⁠However, if you view the picture carefully, there are 2 patterns and 2 colours! Love it!⁠Googling this further, I've found out that cobble circle kits are available in the US. Which is super cool I might add. As they are a fast an easy way for DIY'ers like some of you to add some pizzaz to your outdoor living room. Not only do these circle kits make circles, they are great for making curvy sidewalks, too. You can also the circle kit to make fans or other circular patterns!⁠Would love to know if anyone knows if these kits are available in Australia at all! Would love to use this in one of my designs so are there any takers? 😎💚 ... See MoreSee Less
