New York state of mind…

Australian House & Garden - - Garden Special -

It may be sit­ting pretty in New York, but this com­pact ter­race gar­den (above) con­tains plenty of ideas for an Aussie bal­cony. De­signed by ex­pat Aus­tralian land­scape de­signer Damien Har­ri­son, the 18m2 space fea­tures floor­ing, bench seat­ing and cladding made from ipe wood. “The re­strained ma­te­ri­als pal­ette helps make it feel clean-lined and open,” says Damien. Planters are filled with wood­land-style plants, a foil for the hard­scap­ing, sev­eral of which are flow­er­ing for colour in au­tumn and spring. “Sea­sonal in­ter­est is key in a small gar­den where ev­ery plant has to have im­pact,” says Damien. The Ja­panese snow­bell tree ( Styrax

japon­i­cus) will grow to pro­vide height and shade. Har­ri­son Green; www.har­
