The owners of this property in the seaside suburb of Portobello 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.
Now they love to dine out on the terrace with a glass of wine, while the sausages sizzle on the barbecue, and 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.
Coppery tints in the stems, leaves and flowers of the planting complemented the tones in the landscaping materials.
