Edible Garden Port Melbourne
This sustainable rear garden was designed with many circles for entertaining, seating areas and zones for vegetables for a passionate cook.
Due to the property also being used as a B & B, planning and construction of the project had to be efficient to reduce any impact.
Honed bluestone pavers in a stretcher bond pattern with custom sawn sizes of 950mm by 500mm laid on mortar and grouted with white grout were used to provide interest and access.
Privacy screens of Olive trees and Lily Pilly hedging plants provide framing, whilst Granitic sand compliments the coastal feel of the garden.
An automatic irrigation system was installed to simplify watering.
