What a difference a floor can make! This makeover, found at Normal Room (an Australian site for sharing house projects), proves that a garden can be radically changed with the introduction of a unifying floor. While what existed before wasn’t particularly bad…it could be described as a little manky and rough around the edges and I think you will agree that this ‘after’ is quite a bit better.
The new pretty redwood deck is sleek and clean and ties in the existing pond a whole lot better. I could easily imagine enjoying the sound of running water here while I drink my morning cup of coffee (bare foot in a robe…whereas I wouldn’t want to have stepped shoeless onto that brick). But I think the true star of this makeover is the back wall.
Cleaning up the space by attaching horizontal strips of wood while leaving open areas for candles is an easy DIY that has a lot of impact. – Rochelle
