WORDS Mina Phillips

Nigel Ramsden’s clients thought their original garden was old and tired. They wanted to convert it into a great entertaining area with a BBQ, outdoor lounge and outdoor dining area.

The original outdoor area was a lawn outlined by a small, deteriorating retaining wall. On the other side of the retaining wall was a slightly overgrown garden and a well kept hedge. The garden also contained some great established plants, including a dragon tree and a lepidozamia, which were moved and made into garden features.

The project included an eclectic use of materials, such as; pavers, reclaimed railway sleepers, schist and composite decking board, which worked great together. A ready lawn was laid, with an irrigation system, for both the lawns and the gardens.

Within 3 weeks the lawn was transformed into a luxurious outdoor social zone. Specific areas were set for each purpose, with the centre focus being the covered patio lounge and BBQ area. Leading away from the patio, a stone path was placed alongside a sturdy new retaining wall, leading to the dining area. And just past the dining area - a tropical themed, covered spa.
