Family Garden Designs Large family garden - Phase 1, Side Garden

The Brief

The existing site was an unusable area on a steep slope, and was only used as a store area and for washing. 

The client wanted to transform the side garden into an area for entertaining and for the family to use. The garden also needed to incorporate a barbecue house with a large dining area and a log store.

What we did

Our solution

To transform an unusable area into an entertainment area

The side garden, new retaining walls were created re-using the existing stone, and block and rendered walls. A raised, cantilever split level hardwood deck provided an entertaining area for the family. Raised beds to the rear of decking area were created using sleepers to provide an area for seating and also planting. The a new paved area below the cantilevered deck  provided access from the front of the property to the side and rear.

The space underneath the cantilever deck provided the perfect area for a covered log store.

“The attention to detail at both the design and build stage was excellent. We only had a basic brief of what we wanted but from our discussions the final design was spot on. Project transformed a 3/4 acre garden. Recently went back for a design of our kitchen garden.”
