front yard of this project was severely sloped and required levels to be put
in to reduce the risk of runoff into the street during heavy rain.
also wanted to draw the garden user in and around the garden rather than create
a direct route through the garden.
owners also like to cook so we added a semi-mature lemon tree in the center
of the garden and olive trees along a rendered wall.
iris will in time create a dense border around all the garden beds and Waterhousia
floribunda planted around the perimeter will in time create a living wall
making the whole area feel private and secluded.
anchored the two corners with Chinese elms that will gracefully spread and
provide a wonderful canopy during the height of summer when this garden is
a real hot spot.
