St Mary’s Bay

2015 Garden 4 - St Mary’s Bay


Design Brief

Designed at the same time as the new living space to work with the internal design to promote seamless transitions from indoor to outdoor spaces, this garden is a response to downsizing and how we can preserve elements of the traditional kiwi section in smaller plots. Referencing the traditional backyard, the lawn dominates, complemented by a vegetable plot and vertical herb garden. Large planters give space for flowers and there is a patio for entertaining in summer. The backyard shed has survived, but with a modern twist. Planting is simple and hardy, giving the lushness needed without monopolising space.
