They say if you want something done right, do it yourself. This is the sentiment that inspired Style Scape’s Rhys Ferguson to landscape his own beautiful backyard on Clipper Quay in Safety Beach. With the garden overlooking the Martha Cove Waterway, Ferguson wanted to create a connection to the adjoining pier below, and provide easy access to his boat. The space needed to be highly functional, with minimal maintenance requirements.
Several entertaining areas on the upper and lower decks include an outdoor television and barbecue area, as well as different seating zones. Flowing from the back door all the way to the pier, a luxurious pool connects the house to the quay.
The overall outdoor design focusses on practicality; the lower deck is perfect for relaxing after docking the boat, while the upper deck is an ideal communal space for socialising and enjoying the pool. The lounge room’s large glass windows fold open to allow seamless integration of the interior and exterior areas.
