The right choice of trees can transform a space, opting for evergreen coverage changes the entire feel and gives a new lease of life. A well positioned terrace that gives privacy and a protected feel that makes all the difference to the enjoyment and use of a space.

With this garden we wanted to enhance the beautiful rich tones of their stone wall with a Corten Steel water feature that would push back the surrounding suburban hustle and bustle, so that time in the garden is truly time well spent together, relaxing and enjoying the moment. This water feature creates a big focal point in a small garden, planted in amongst the lush flower beds it is an integral part of the overall scheme for this couple.

Well placed wallcover brings a verdant feel to the once bare walls, Star Jasmine climbs the side walls and settles the shed into place. While the alpine plants in and around the Granite stepping stones link herbaceous planting seamlessly with the hardscaping detail.

We recently returned to this garden for some top-up garden maintenance. Check out the newest pictures and videos of the garden below in full bloom.
