Transformation from a soulless paved patio to a low maintenance attractive, green and harmonious outdoor space. A young professional couple from the Southern Hemisphere required a simple, low maintenance space, with planting to remind them of home.
The concrete paving has been removed and the unattractive neighbouring fence has been clad. Now horizontal-slatted, natural-finish timber screens three sides. A simple raised planter wraps around a low, inbuilt, hardwood bench. Two sawn sandstone patio areas are intertwined by Atlantic washed cobbles providing texture, and mulch to resist weed growth. Bamboos and mature tree ferns provide lush green focal points and height.
