Rural River Retreat

Rural River Retreat

Rural River Retreat

Overlooking the Wairoa River, this property is subjected to fairly strong prevailing winds and frosts in the winter. The clients asked us to create a rural retreat, including a swimming pool, for them to escape to.

We carefully calculated the best location for the pool and constructed a large lagoon-style pool with a big waterfall that cascades into it, reflecting the riverside environment. By placing 100 tonne of boulders from the Wanganui River into the garden we were able to create a lush subtropical feel and a natural environment surrounding and over-hanging the pool.

We designed and built an attractive pool house, including a fire place and bi-folding doors. We also crafted a hard surface beach that runs from the pool house down into the pool for ease of access and to maintain a natural look and feel to the area.

Part of this project included designing the lighting for the whole garden. Our priority was to use the lighting to emphasise certain parts of the pool and plantings to continue the natural theme.

This showcase highlights our experience in creating gardens that are frost-tolerant and which merge seamlessly into the surrounding natural environment.
