This higher level concept plan is for a garden in greater Brisbane, Australia. The clients were keen to develop a plan that would allow them to make the most of their garden – currently mostly laid to lawn. They wanted a lush and tropical feel and a space that they could use for recreation – especially swimming and outdoors dining. (Zone 9b-10) and love palms. They also wished to grow plenty of food for themselves, and for their community.
Contouring the land with the creation of large basins and the planting around are designed to maximise water infiltration during rainy times, and to create microclimates for plant growth through the space.
If you are interested in having more information about this design, or would like to have a design created for your own garden, please do get in touch.
