While we were working on a neighbours front garden in West Brunswick, we ran into a client from a couple of years ago. I had prepared and garden design and layout for their back garden. The brief was to work within the existing levels, incorporate privacy from neighbours, outdoor storage, al fresco dining, vegetable garden beds and child friendlly play space. The levels worked well to divide the back yard into zones, allowing for outdoor seating (over what was a garage floor), step down to lawn & play area and vegie beds to the side.
The planting scheme was essentially native / indigeneous. My intent was to show colour contrast in the foliage. I think this is highlighted quite well by some of these shots taken in spring 2012. The combination of grevillea, eucalyptus ‘Silver Princess’ and leucophyta looks great!
