I was in North Melbourne recently doing a consultation More
This West Brunswick courtyard has been transformed into an attractive outdoor space. We started with a very drab narrow space that was really only used to get to and from the garage and the clothesline. Anyone familar with the classic 70’s and 80’s villa units will be familar with what I call token outdoor spaces. But, we have managed to transform this space, the deck eliminates narrow steps down that would cut the yard in half, the original planter box has been given a new lease of life with this gorgeous red that the client chose, it really links all the elements together. We’ve made the most of the vertical space; espalier citrus, clumping bamboo and vertical screens for herbs and greens. The pergola really adds depth and completes the picture. More
This is a garden we installed in Thornbury last spring. Have just been back recently for a visit to see how it is all progressing. Our client wanted to reclaim their unused lawn in the front garden. It was a perfect spot for growing vegetables and other edibles with lots of north light. We’ve included dwarf cultivar fruit trees, both citrus and stone fruits. The extra growing space has alllowed for room to grow perennials and fruit trees that won’t take up valuable space in the annual beds.
We offer a garden consultation service
which helps you to achieve your garden on a budget. A visit to this Melbourne garden was enough for Stuart & Jen to create their own garden. Our client needed advice on layout and plantings, and wanted to do the work themselves. We were able to provide a sketch to scale and draw up a basic layout with plant suggestions. This was a good compromise where a sketch gave enough detail for this project to take shape. More
