A low maintenance backyard makeover was requested for this Blenheim bungalow, ensuring the garden flowed from the newly renovated kitchen and living areas. A new garage was added and significant overgrown vegetation removed to provide light and space for outdoor living areas. As the hedges establish a greater sense of privacy will be achieved around the new lawn area. A larger paved area allows for larger group entertaining whilst a smaller shaded side courtyard is used day to day. Irrigation throughout has ensured good plant establishment for a range of native and exotic species suited to the warm and dry climate.
