The Flora Garden (Personal Residence)

The garden was designed as a front yard oasis and healing space. The client had sustained a severe upper body injury with resulting hand injuries which did not allow her to use one hand properly. Using finely textured plant material, a diverse palette of colour, seasonal and fragrant plants were selected so that she could enjoy her garden with aromatic and visual refreshment. Between the patio pavers thyme was planted together with Blue Star ground cover so when she walked, she would smell the thyme under her feet. With the aid of a landscaping contractor versatile in creating aquascapes, the client had a private front yard garden space with a water feature and could sit in her garden space enjoying the sunny area of her yard. This also allowed her to engage with her neighbours in a closely knit suburban yet private enclave.
