Instantly appealing, this modest garden was
created with function and form in mind.
As well as connecting the indoors with the
outdoor zones, it was designed with the intention
of being visible from each part of the home.
Stepping out from the living room and kitchen,
the Merbau-decked alfresco forms an extension

Beyond, a separate curved seating area around
a fire pit is covered with rainbow stone for easy
care. The circular, tropical-inspired region is
‘framed’ with frangipanis, strelitzias and cycads.
At the front of the home, the simplistic,
low-maintenance theme is continued with
pine bark-mulched garden beds, highlighted
with artificial turf.
The striking entrance portico is further
enhanced with the strategic placement of a yucca
in a simple stone planter bowl, completing this
garden with maximum street appeal.
