Mid Century Modern garden

Set in the ‘Beverly Hills’ of Moorooka, this late 1960’s mid century house exudes the charm and optimism typical of it’s age. The clients approached with a specific design brief- to create a modern garden that would reflect the innovative nature of the original house design. Furthermore the client had a preference for native, and more specifically, Brigalow type vegetation for the front garden, while needing more practical requirements of screening and food growing in the back garden.

Taking advantage of the dapped light and slope, a series of corten steel gardens delineate the house from the verge while a set of steel steps adjacent to the house give access to a decomposed granite path. A feature 500 lt Bottle Tree (Brachychiton rupestris) was craned in as the focus. With a planting palate that is 90% native the garden should withstand whatever the weather can throw at it for years to come.
