Newlands Roof Garden

Location: Newlands 
Completed: November 2020


BRIEF: Robin wanted to prepare the property for sale. It had been on the market for three years without a buyer.

SOLUTION: 

  • We identified the undeveloped roof garden area as a special opportunity to add value to the home by creating a comfortable, beautiful outdoor lounging area. 

  • Adding a deck with a pergola with transparent roofing sheets meant garden furniture could be left outside and it was a outdoor refuge even in the rain - perfect for a big family. It became a favourite spot for sun downers.   

  • Planting: We created a lush green "floor" with stepping stones and ground covers. Soft ornamental grasses, pinks and white Spur flowers and white Leonotis attracted birds and looked great in the evening light.   

SUCCESS!:

It sold within 3 months of going back on the market with the new buyers naming the roof garden as one of their favourite features of their new home.
