Elizabeth Weyer's passion for landscape architecture is evident in her work, and this Sandgate project is no exception. With a deep understanding of the local environment and a keen eye for design, she has managed to create a garden that is not only visually stunning but also harmonizes seamlessly with its coastal surroundings.

Elizabth Weyer's vision for this Sandgate garden was to complement the newly renovated home with a contemporary landscape design. The result is truly magical. The garden brings out the best in the house, and the house, in turn, enhances the beauty of the garden.

At the heart of this breathtaking garden, you'll find a remarkable Dracaena draco. Often referred to as the "Dragon Tree," this botanical wonder adds an exotic and mystical touch to the landscape. Its towering presence and unique form make it the perfect centrepiece, drawing the eye and instilling a sense of wonder.

The garden is carefully interconnected with meandering crazy pave steppers. These irregularly shaped stones guide you through the lush greenery and create a delightful pathway. As you wander along these stepping stones, you'll experience a journey that evokes tranquillity and a connection to the natural world.

One of the most enchanting aspects of this garden is the stunning green palette of plants that surrounds the Dragon Tree. The choice of vegetation, including succulents, native grasses, and vibrant shrubs, creates a lush and vibrant atmosphere. The symphony of green is a stark contrast to the deep blacks of the house, showcasing the power of complementary design elements.

This garden exemplifies the essence of coastal living.

The juxtaposition of modern architectural elements with the natural beauty of the landscape exemplifies the harmony that can be achieved in a coastal environment. Elizabeth Weyer and the Brooke's Blooms team have expertly crafted a winning coastal combination that captivates all who have the pleasure of visiting.
