Balinese Style Garden
The owners of this small narrow townhouse garden needed advice on their rear garden. Being long and narrow with a tiny deck too small for a table and chairs and a lawn that was difficult to maintain and always too wet, the garden needed better decking and planting to liven up the area.
Decking was designed to utilize the whole area giving plenty of space for alfresco dining and entertaining, doing away with the lawn completely.
The diagonal design of the deck makes the space feel larger while blurring the boundaries, helping create a greater sense of space.
Small pockets of lush planting disguise the corners and long lengths of obtrusive timber retaining walls.
The lush Balinese style planting help give the garden a sense of privacy and enclosure, as well as being low maintenance.
Although small the garden is zoned into areas of different uses such as morning tea under the pergola, barbeques in the evening and alfresco dining during the day.
Focal points are used to draw the eye through the garden and typify the Balinese theme.
No lawns to mow, just sit back and enjoy a taste of Bali in your own backyard.
