A townhouse where you will find not just a garden but a sanctuary - a world of flowers, pergolas of roses and wisteria, and peace. It is abundant in variety and colour and an example of how clever design can create a tranquil town garden in a very small space.

Another town house but using the space quite differently. The view from the street is a colourful mass of annuals and perennials framing a beautifully manicured lawn. Go around the back to the edible garden and a richness of fruit and citrus trees, berries, vegetables, herbs and flowers all sitting easily side-by-side.

Design skill is evident; bringing together plants, recycled timbers and ironwork. Just two years’ work has changed an uninspiring suburban section into a garden of roses, hedging, shrubs and vegetables chosen for year-round interest. A formal front garden and at the back trees, shrubs, raised vegetable boxes and four chooks.
