Daily Garden: Shades of Green’s Brisbane Garden

I am very impress with this tiny garden.  The brief called transforming a tiny garden area around a vintage cottage into an outdoor entertaining space with low maintenance planting and a usable driveway.

The front lawn was removed to create lounge area with a new outdoor fireplace and stone patio seating area surrounded by low water use plantings. The driveway was replaced with concrete pavers and gravel to allow rainwater to infiltrate on site and create a more inviting outdoor dining area.

The most interesting part is what those metal panels do at night.  The drama that they create in garden when lit is really exciting don’t you think?   I also really enjoy how they tie in with the fireplace (which, of course, I love because I have one just like it!)

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    That is a great fireplace…I want one too. Great use of a small, and reclaimed space. Matti
