Rear Patio Makeover

This Forest Gardens client needed a makeover for their rear patio garden. What they had was a ‘tired’ garden, planted with 5 or 6 native trees that were too tall for the narrow area, and were filling the gutters with dead leaves. Other than creating work for the customer, all they could see from their patio was tree trunks.

To create visual interest, we chose a low Water Feature which suited the narrow width (1.8m) and landscaped around it. The owner wanted a tropical theme with lots of colour. Garden Art Landscapes delivered by planting 3 Bamboo Palms at the rear, with their height just above the fence line for the privacy, adding a mixture of Cordylines and var. Stromanthes for colour. To complete the project, we painted the fence a blue/grey to enhance the colour of the plants and installed manual irrigation and low voltage garden lights. 50mm Cream Riverstone pebbles covered the soil, stopping a dirty patio and weeds.
