Glen Iris garden overhaul - Boodle Concepts maximises a small courtyard ready for Summer entertaining.
Jen called us from her garden in Glen Iris, overwhelmed. Her old courtyard was overgrown with weeds, and she'd had spent a weekend painting the paling fence and couldn't face painting a second coat. In need of some affordable garden design ideas, Jen physically walked us through her space and we gave landscaping & landscape design solutions for her rear courtyard, identified spaces that worked and suggested ways to overcome lackluster areas.
Here's what we recommended for this simple garden design:
- re-oil outdoor furniture,
- raise soil levels (raised garden beds for visual interest),
- re-paint garden bed and paling fence,
- accent planting 'Star Jasmine',
- black dyed mulch and new courtyard pots.
We want to know if you love the paint colour? We've used Dulux 'Namadji', a dark charcoal backdrop which makes the glossy green plants 'POP'. If you wanted to go one step further, we suggest a wire fence trellis for the plants to climb onto, and LED mood lighting for night-time entertaining.
For more landscape design ideas for your garden in Glen Iris and beyond, give Boodle Concepts a call.
