St Mary’s Bay
2015 Garden 4 - St Mary’s Bay
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.
