IN THE BACK­YARD PHASE

of Chan­nel Seven’s ren­o­va­tion re­al­ity show House Rules, this gar­den, part of a farm in Can­delo, NSW, has gone from zero to hero. Aim­ing for a ‘mod­ern coun­try’ vibe, the re­main­ing con­tes­tants trans­formed own­ers Toad and Mandy’s gar­den with hues of blue, and turned the old shed into an en­ter­tain­ing zone with a pub vibe (op­po­site). Ex­panses of green­ery and pretty plant­ings soften the im­pact of the hard­scap­ing.

DIN­ING AREA

A rus­tic chic vibe pre­vails in the care­fully cu­rated out­door din­ing zone (top left), where a ta­ble and chairs from Burn­ing Log dressed with ac­ces­sories from Early Set­tler cre­ate an in­vi­ta­tion to dine.

PLANT­INGS

An el­e­gant mix of state­ment trees, green­ery and pops of colour de­liver a look that in time will be­come a beau­ti­ful coun­try gar­den (top right). “Although this is nes­tled in a very Aus­tralian back­drop, it is quite fit­ting to use more tra­di­tional or­na­men­tal plants like mag­no­lias in the gar­den,” says House Rules judge and Home

Beau­ti­ful’s Wendy Moore.
