Outdoor living and entertaining were high on the clients’ list for this backyard. The barbecue, outdoor fireplace, breakfast deck and steel arbor extend the Kitchen and family room, while the spa and woodland planting reflect the serenity of the bedroom. A linear decking element acts as a spine, running from the spa area and across the water feature to the trellised fireplace patio.
This garden was awarded the Grand Prize in the 2006/2007 Sunset Dream Garden Awards.
