Berry Mountain, Kangaroo Valley

Client:  Dave and Charlene
Year Completed2018

This design/construct project located on the hills of Berry Mountain over looked Kangaroo Valley. The design of the house was quite simple and aimed to sit comfortably in its surrounds with minimal impact. The brief was simple and involved creating a landscape that suited both the style of the house and the surrounding landscape while still creating a warm and inviting space for the user. Our landscape design followed the same minimalistic style set by the house via the way of using a minimalist style that utilised the surrounding scenery as a feature. Simple geometric forms and patterns were incorporated in an attempt to pay tribute to the houses simple architecture while also drawing the users attention into the space then out and beyond.

Geometry and scale were key in the design to balance the structure of the house with its placement in the surrounding landscape.  A simple and some what rustic material palette was selected to fit in with both the architecture of the house and its surrounds. A mix of blue stone, recycled bricks, railway sleepers, hardwood and river pebble was used throughout to bring a welcoming and country estate feel to the property as soon as you enter.



Our expert team are the cool climate garden specialists, having created elegant landscapes throughout the region, including Mittagong, Bowral, Moss Vale and Robertson.


We design and construct landscapes that are sensitive to the stunning locations of this particular region, from escarpment foothills and coastal clifftops to rural pasture lands.


Our experience across the Illawarra has led us to adapt our design to various locations across Wollongong.


Jake and his team provided an excellent service from day one. We approached them originally for a landscape design only, this then led to construction and now on going maintenance. We can not fault the service provided.

We were extremely happy with the results from the Loco Team. From start to finish nothing was a problem and everything was completed on time, as promised and to a great standard. The boys really went the extra mile to put the finishing touches on the project and ensure we were completely satisfied.

I was initially a bit overwhelmed by the thought of having our gardens constructed and not knowing what to expect but Jake and his team put me at ease and listened to my ideas, walking me through the process, keeping me informed throughout the project. The end result was better than we could have imagined. Thanks to the team at Loco for going above and beyond when creating our beautiful space for us to enjoy.

Watching our garden being transformed by Jake and the Loco crew was great to witness. Jake was very easy to work with and informative providing insight into what works in our areas and suggestions on utilising space to suit our needs. It was an excellent experience from beginning to end.


- Caroline, Bowral

With no real idea of what we wanted from our property and garden we approached Loco Landscape Design Studio who were extremely helpful and prompt with creating an amazing design which then developed into construction. We now have an amazing garden that caters for our whole family's needs.
