Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Gardenwalkaround -

Nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als fea­ture heav­ily through­out this land­scape, with the use of rail­way sleep­ers for steps and crushed earth-coloured gran­ite for the flat ar­eas and land­ings. Left ex­posed to the el­e­ments, th­ese tex­tures will be­come more ap­peal­ing with time as they grad­u­ally weather. The stand-out fea­ture of this gar­den is the ef­fec­tive use of slop­ing con­tours. Ter­rac­ing gives the space a sense of di­men­sion and an­chors the gar­den zones. There’s an area de­signed for en­ter­tain­ing, a space to re­lax and play ar­eas for the kids – which in­cludes a sur­pris­ingly spa­cious lawn area.
