2019 Garden 3 - Ponsonby
The owners of this relocated bungalow wanted to create an eye-catching scene in the front that drew visitors into the house. At the rear, something more relaxed was required to surround an existing sun deck.
The design response in the front garden contrasts structural elements of a contemporary flavour with plantings of clipped dark green foliage and stately palms, imparting a classic feel.
At the rear, large pots and timber elements provide drama via scale and form. Planting here is a riotous mix, resulting in a more relaxed vibe.
Hard materials unite front and rear spaces via a common language.
