At Small Spaces Garden Design we specialise in courtyard designs found in the inner northern melbourne and the surrounding areas. For this small garden project, the ‘Garton Garden’, in Princes Hill our aim was to create an informal cottage/native garden full of the plants our client enjoyed, while also proving an area for the children to play.
The backyard design for this garden was intended to divide the backyard into three sections which provide zones for the morning, afternoon and evening entertainment.
The entry to this small garden is through a narrow side way where we have installed a deck to maximise the use of the northern light, while also providing a viewpoint to the main garden which features an informal seating area around a circular gravel area which creates a path to the back gate without dividing the space.
Whereas before the garden makeover the backyard design felt cluttered and small the ammenities such as the heating, air-con and bins have been hidden behind a removeable screen which is easily accesible and finished with a bespoke handle.
