Germinate Garden Design was challenges by design this beautiful backyard garden of a house for a young couple and their four small children. Were asked to design this backyard into a beautiful and sophisticated outdoor space to be perfect place to entertain friends and family.
Inspired by their favorite holiday destination, Ibiza, they dream a very cool and creative garden, with plenty of colour. The result is a funky garden design with plenty of space to entertain their friends and family, with a various elements: a bespoke outdoor kitchen, with top of the range built-in BBQ and storage, two-tier raised beds doubling up as seating thanks to a beautiful handcrafted hardwood bench, a green wall inspired by the clients’ favourite hotel in Paris, a stunning mosaic with a beautiful feature. A sound and lighting system and automatic irrigation were also installed. York stone was used for the stone circles and the BBQ work surface. Island stone pebbles were used as infill, to offer textural contrast to the York stone. the architects said.
The planting is based around architectural plants, mostly evergreen, such as Pittosporum tobira, Melianthus major, Viburnum dreamii and Libertia formosa, with summer colour provided by Geranium ‘Patricia’. On the south facing wall we provided our foodie clients with a herb green wall containing thyme, sage, oregano, mint, rosemary and tarragon. the architects added.
