PRIVATE POCKET GARDEN
Short Street, Birchgrove | Residential
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Australian Institute of Landscape Designers and Managers
2013 – National Gold Award Residential Design under $50,000
Whilst this amazing home would be the envy of most people, the garden certainly wasn’t. Being only 3m wide by 6m long and enclosed with 3m high walls, this tiny garden felt like a concrete box. The solution is to keep the materials simple, build in the seating and create a visual feature on the back wall.
A vertical garden creates an opportunity to grow your own produce, whilst planting on the wire and dwarf magnolias break up the sense of height created by the existing walls. Using timbers, sandstone and organic colours, create a garden that is a true delight to us and our clients.
