Transforming a Tapered Backyard

Garden Design, Garden Landscaping, Paving & Patios

Our team transformed a client’s garden by carefully considering their brief, we crafted a design proposal that catered to year-round enjoyment and incorporated modern themed planting, a simple and spacious layout, and a thoughtful lighting scheme.

The focal point of the transformation was the creation of a semi-open outdoor dining area and dynamic social space. A sleek metal pergola was installed to provide natural light, shade, and privacy, making it the perfect setting for gatherings and relaxation. The patio was expanded, raised, and resurfaced with natural sandstones, seamlessly extending the indoor living space into the outdoors.

To optimize the layout, a new entry gate was designed, and a new retaining wall was built. This not only enhanced the functionality of the space but also added visual interest. At night, the patio comes alive with the warm glow of festoon lights, creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere. Hidden spike lights illuminate focal corners, adding depth and ambiance to the surroundings.

Taking advantage of the retaining wall, multi-leveled planters were incorporated, adding a strong visual element to the patio. Vibrant flowers, multi-shaded perennials, and evergreens were strategically planted to create a collage of colors and textures, bringing warmth and vibrancy to the space. The elevated plantings within the patio area serve as a focal point, adding visual interest and depth to the design.

A Corten steel water bowl, nestled within white pebbles, blends seamlessly into the plantings, providing a stunning sight, cooling touch, and soothing sound of trickling water. This water feature not only adds life to the corner but also attracts beneficial insects and birds, promoting biophilia and enhancing the garden ecosystem.

Drought-tolerant evergreens and perennials were carefully selected to thrive in the patio environment, ensuring year-round beauty with minimal maintenance. Decorative pots, scented Jasmin vine, and eye-catching hydrangea bulbs add vigour and charm throughout the seasons. The elevated planting bed, covered with matching bricks, maintains an earthy tone and seamlessly blends with the surroundings.

By incorporating elements that cater to both aesthetic appeal and functionality, we’ve created a space that offers year-round enjoyment and enhances the connection between the client and their outdoor environment.
