Project Description


The owners of this property in the seaside suburb of Portobello. They live busy lives with three children, friends, family and neighbours popping in and out throughout the day. They wanted a garden that really suited their lifestyle.

Be inspired to create an outdoor living space

Now they love to dine out on the terrace with a glass of wine, while the sausages sizzle on the barbecue. The kids play on the trampoline with their friends or take their bikes out along the promenade.


The garden gives the whole family a chance to unwind away from city life and connect with nature and the seasons. Birds, butterflies and bees love the berries and nectar rich flowers that have been planted here. The kids help with growing fruit and vegetables for their healthy home-made meals.
