In this residential oasis, Porta Cumaru hardwood has been used to create poolside landscaping.
The Porta Cumaru timber battens create an elegant design detail. The battens are used throughout the stepped landscaping features; sun lounge, bench, seats, bbq and steps. The repetition of the battens creates an underlying rhythm. Their clean vertical lines complement the elegant chrome fencing and crisp white rafters, drawing the viewers sight to the cool blue pool.
Porta Cumaru hardwood has near zero leaching properties making it the ideal poolside timber. Leaching occurs in all timbers to varying degrees, in many common decking timbers it causes rusty looking marks on nearby surfaces – but this is not a concern for Cumaru.
