This project at Newrybar has had an expanding scope, but the design is finally coming together. The design was inspired by the juxtapositions in the surrounding landscape: the lineal cane fields and macadamia orchards v’s the organic and flowing creeklines and coastline. We have used some local sandstone for walling and very chunky ironbark for decking. The lineal garden edging is saw cut sandstone bricks which reverts to an organically shaped CorTen steel edge. The external decks step down to some large natural stone pavers set between some existing Poincianas. A beautiful place to sit in the afternoons to take in the breathtaking coastal view. The plants embrace the theme by incorporating a mix of local rainforest plants accented by dry grasses and exotic feature plants. I am excited to see the final result when it is completed in 2018.
As an AILA Registered Landscape Architect and a true Northern Rivers local, Sheryn enjoys spending time with her young family on the farm and sweating it out in the forests mountain biking and running. It is the ability to enjoy these and other experiences within a diversity of natural, rural and culturally enriched urban settings that drive her deep passion for design, the landscape, and the village character of the region.
