These clients had recently completed a major renovation to the back of the house. New bifold doors turned the tired and overgrown garden into the backdrop for the beautifully finished family room, prompting the clients to turn their attention to the outdoor space. They wanted to create a large patio as an extension of the existing kitchen floor and retain access to the large shed space the bottom of the garden. They wanted to review some of the plants in the space, and were keen to cover up the unsightly fence on the right and create bit of buffering from the noisy neighbours. They also wanted a new side gate in the bottom left-hand side of the space.


The new design twists the layout of the garden on an angle to create the illusion of a bigger space. Adjoining the house is a porcelain tile patio laid in a stretcher pattern at 45 degrees to the boundaries. To the right hand side of this area is a railway sleeper planter, planted with the client’s existing bamboo and framed by a sheet of grey Perspex Naturals attached to the existing fence. The main section of the garden features an artificial lawn in the centre, bisected by two rectangular railway sleeper raised beds to break up the space.

Towards the back of the garden is a second smaller patio laid with the same porcelain tiles as the main patio and a feature section laid with wood effect porcelain tiles to create contrast. The existing fences are painted in dark grey Cuprinol Garden Shades. Several of the more mature plants in the garden were retained and supplemented with a planting scheme focussing on foliage and evergreens. Various textured species with a mixture of shades of greens give the garden year round interest.
