Completing this large suburban garden was a joy from start to finish. Previously landscaped almost fifteen years ago it was in serious need of some modern design and finishes. Our brief was to completely transform the space into something both beautiful and contemporary, while also being multifunctional to accommodate the client’s children.
Due to the floor height inside the house, a small raised area was built to minimize this drop in level and provide a seamless transition between indoors and outdoors. This space, while acting as a landing area, also doubles up as an outdoor dining area on warm summer days due to its proximity to the kitchen. Two recessed box ball beds either side help to break up the paving lines and soften the space.
Two steps down off this is a large patio area perfect for entertaining both family and friends. Beyond this, a raised block planter runs the whole way around the boundary walls, the highlight of which is the gorgeous jasmine running along stainless-steel rope wire creating a beautiful green backdrop.
