The Brief

This small and messy garden was not very well laid out and the hard landscaping was dilapidated.  A complete re think was needed for the young couple who wanted a contemporary garden to suit the inside of their house.

After initial designs were drawn up the scope was extended by removing the garage to make the garden about a third bigger.

The Solution

It made sense to still use the level changes in the garden to create interest and also to avoid excessive earth removal although quite a lot was still carted away!  The garden is divided into rooms with built in seating creating one area, a raised deck and pergola making a second area and the lower area making the largest space for the family to play in.  A shed is tucked in the corner screened by bamboo and the whole look is finished with slatted western red cedar fencing.  A feature laser cut screen and the brackets for the seat were powder coated the same colour to add a colour pop to the space.  Finally 3 mature parasol trees were planted to create privacy, give height and green structure to the space.
