Elwood

Elwood

Shared space.  This compact garden is a great example of economical use of space, form and function…with a little bit of street creativity to add!

This back garden in Elwood comprises of the signature curved deck, interesting garden beds, stone walls, a hidden dog kennel, parking space, shed and bespoke street art.  It has it all packed into a compact area.

  • Rock walls surround the curved deck, backdropped by tall bamboo to screen the neighbour’s houses.
  • A breakfast bar is overhung with shelves of interesting plants and ephemera.  Hidden underneath the blue stone bench-top and stone wall is a cozy dog house.
  • Rock work driveway can be accessed by the rear roll-a-door and parking space utilised.  When not used for this purpose it is still an attractive feature of the garden, overhung by ancient fruit trees.
  • Bespoke artwork(@sukitheartist) make the rear door a feature in itself.
  • Blue stone stepping stones serve as a bridge between the deck and the rock work and are surrounded by Viola hederacea making it appear the stones have a blurred soft  edge.
  • Once again the use of curved edges achieve a fluid effect without introducing sharp lines of space definition or limitation.
