This suburban block packs a punch with beautifully designed spaces for all the family. The house has been modernised and the garden needed to reflect this but at the same time soften the modern look. This is achieved with curved garden seating and the use of timber decking as well as plantings that are not uniform. Besides the wonderful choice of plants there is an interesting vegetable area using large concrete tubs as containers and the concrete seating that was poured in situe. Treesused are varied such as magnolia grandiflora, golden pencil pine and gingko. Gingko trees and underplanting surround an undulating front lawn area and the back area fits with hard surfaces uses curves and a separate area for reflection or just a quiet sit. Underplantings include foxtail ferns, euphorbias and nandines.

This garden shows what good design can achieve.
