A modern take on traditional Japanese Garden for a serene retreat and an Outdoor Dining Room where the food grows at the table.
In 2012 we moved into a new townhouse with bare courtyards front and back. Our original idea was to have a picturesque Japanese style garden at the rear, which we could look onto from our studies, and a more formal productive garden at the front, with fruit vegetables and flowers mixed together.
Dimension Gardenscape introduced us to one of their garden designers, who came up with wonderful ideas we had not thought of: slate mounds to surround the potted plants at the rear and a timber deck at the front to provide some extra living space.
The cost to achieve this plan was a little beyond our budget, but Greg and Trevor worked with us to modify plant choices to get to an acceptable price. Their staff worked cheerfully and efficiently to do the installation with minimum disruption.
We love both spaces now – especially the front garden where we feel we have an extra room in the house and the opportunity to play with our vegetable garden. We are delighted at how productive our apple trees are. We often eat out there in the evening and try to include at least some food from our own garden in every evening meal.
