- St Kilda..
Request: Steve and Gina had a courtyard that was over grown and completely unusable. Steve wanted a BBQ area and Gina wanted to entertain.
Challenge: After the initial consultation we discovered that their requests did not fit with in the budget they had in mind. I asked Gina to give me a figure and I would design the best space possible within that price range.
Solution:We in built the BBQ using Polished stone and I added a servery. We then built a decking seat from a previous design of mine but with a twist. We created garden boxes at the top and planted flowering climbers to add colour and dimension to the area.
We poured Exposed aggregate instead of paving to save money but still got a fantastic result.
In the gardens we planted Bamboo to eventually create privacy and added a rusted feature screen at the other end of the courtyard that again will come into its own when the garden grows.
