Lush Looking Family Garden
Clarkson - October 2011
Design by Gaby Neylon -
Think Green Landscapes
Our clients here
are a young family. A large lawn area with play areas for children
as well as interest in the garden for the grown-ups here were the
key priorities.The clients had a flat yard with a well maintained
lawn area. It was important that the bulk of the lawn area was
retained and that the existing cubby house was incorporated into the
newly updated garden.
A lush tropical
feel was desired so plants with dominant lush looking foliage were
utilised to achieve this. Mostly evergreen trees were used including
Hymenosporum flavum (Native Frangipani) and Magnolia 'Little Gem'. A
range of small foliage plants provide a variety of foliage textures
and colours and most importantly a soft lush look.
The garden also includes a small
productive area including passionfruit vines - a family favourite!
And a jarrah bench seat to sit out in the garden.
