An established gum tree can be made into a
star feature in an outdoor area. This gum had
hindered the growth of any plants beneath, so
was a key consideration of this front garden
‘tidy up’. The solution? A practical alternative to
lawn, a raised deck comfortably accommodates
cushions and beanbags for the kids. The trees
and plants integrated into the garden design are
shade-tolerant, and over time will grow around
the deck to envelope it with privacy. Tim Davies

The sense of relaxation usually only experienced on a tropical holiday can be
achieved in your own garden. Providing both privacy and shading for the pool,
this pavilion features a hanging ceiling and hardwood timber decking, which sits
in contrast to the tiled surround of the pool. Plant selection is based around a lush
theme, with cut-outs in the pavilion walls allowing the garden to grow through.
