At times, “less” really is “more” when it brings about a clean, uncluttered look in your yard, as displayed in this style by Melbourne’s OFTB Landscape Architecture Pool Construction. Surrounded by neatly trimmed green lawn, the pool’s hardscape is a choice of organic materials as properly, concrete and sandstone amongst them. Light-colored concrete walls give privacy fencing, their lines softened by rows of trees that are up-lighted at night for a splendid “framing” impact around the lengthy rectangular space. Every thing right here invites relaxation, from the raised pool deck and square spa to the cascading “fall” and low-lying plantings. But everything here is also ready and waiting for a splash celebration, a cookout, or any unique celebration, thanks to a properly-equipped outside cooking and eating location.
Entertaining is simple and unfussy here, with sliding glass doors that virtually guarantee a smooth flow of guests from barbecue to canopied dining table to indoors and back. Each grey iron bark and galvanized steel play a part in the sturdy cooking area variegated shades of blue glass mosaics brighten each pool and spa, providing gleaming light in the sun and a specific shimmer by evening. Sculptured beds offer just the proper touch of formality to balance the easygoing lines of concrete stepping stones and warm cedar cladding about the tops of the fence. It is all here for loads of outside enjoyable — the water, the sun, the lush greenery, and the handy cooking places for the “foodies” who cease by — at Toorak 2, this Australian home with skilled style from OFTB.
