Landscape designer Steve Taylor combined high-quality architectural materials with an inspired plant palette to achieve effective design outcomes in a residential poolscape project in Parkdale.

The path from the home to the rear courtyard ends at an elevated pool, which has a floating effect over the adjacent lawn and garden bed. Perfectly placed outside the indoor living area, the pool offers a strong visual connection through the floor to ceiling glass windows. The pool and its adjoining timber sundeck add a fun element to the home’s backyard.

Most of the hardscaping elements around the pool were produced in the Anston Bondi colour, which can be seen in the paving, dropdown pool coping and cladding on the pool’s feature wall. Several cladding pieces in a different colour (Bone from Anston’s Ironstone Range) are distributed along the pool edge and on the feature wall to add subtle points of difference to the design.
