Small garden, use of grass and plants
Unify the house and the garden
Love the warmth of tall plants surrounding garden
wood floor continuing into the zen garden
9. Unify house and garden. It’s all about making connections in small outdoor spaces so that house and garden read as one large area. In this Sydney garden the house opens up to a timber deck with the same timber also used further into the garden. When the doors are open, the area becomes one lovely
plants around the edges give this garden a resort vibe, the lushness of the planting balanced by the small patch of simple emerald green lawn.
15. Central courtyardBlurring the lines between interior and exterior, the living area opens out to the luscious tropical garden. This makes the space an ideal

Cover the groundGround-covering plants, such as this lamb’s ear (Stachys), are the water-saving gardener’s best friend. Not only do they help retain moisture in the soil, they also protect it from erosion
6. Give it the soft touchWhen planning our gardens, we often consider the effect it will have on our eyes and noses, but tend to forget the other senses. As well as using plants with colour and scent, why not consider touch, through softly felted leaves like this

Garden an nice wooden path with led
entrance garden, are ideal for guiding people as they move along boardwalks, driveways, paths, steps and through changes of level. They can also be used to delineate the edge of a garden bed or a deck. Avoid glare or blinding lights shining into people’s eyes as they move around the garden.
like it surely does for this Perth home, there is no other way to escape than to take to the tropical confines of your backyard. Just looking at this garden is enough to make you feel cool, calm and collected.

Hybrid: Vegetation + GuardThis rooftop terrace has vegetation layered in front of the guard system, which has the effect of dematerializing the background. One has the sense that the vegetated border is the real guard. With the foreground lit at night, it’s a particularly effective visual trick.

Soften your hardscape. Most gardens needs some hardscape; it makes the space inviting and functional. Sensitivity to
the loose but still structured look of the garden
Small garden with square stepping stones
Soften your hardscape. Most gardens needs some hardscape; it makes the space inviting and functional. Sensitivity to the environment may dictate a philosophy that less is more.
