Inside outside living

Posted on Wed, 2 Dec 2020 by midcenturyjo

Using a small garden space creatively, especially a tiny backyard leading onto a laneway, opens up so much more living space in this inner Sydney terrace. Inside is out and out is in, boundaries are blurred and the home has an added dimension, an extra tropical room. Balmain backyard by Sticks and Stones.

The stuff of dreams. A lush, green garden in the city. It may be small but the plantings pack a punch. Double Bay Courtyard by Wyer & Co.

Tree house

“The key to a show-stopping garden design is to create something unique; something that no one else has or could easily replicate. An easy way to do this is by taking features in the landscape that already exist, and build them into the design. At this Point Lonsdale home, the Moonah trees that are native to that coastline have become the statement of the landscape. Night and day, their shape, colours, movement and shadows remain the focal point, as our clients go about their day nestled beneath them.”

With several days of temperatures over 40 degrees Celsius (real not apparent) looming I am daydreaming of siting quietly, mindfully in the shade of native trees waiting for the heat to pass. A remarkable garden, Point Lonsdale House by Melbourne-based King’s Landscaping.
