Glen Iris Formal Garden Design

Glen Iris Formal Garden Design

By Diane Beddison

This Glen Iris formal garden contains a generous raised paving area with wide steps and wall seating for large family gatherings. Materials used were bricks to match the existing carport contrasted with sawn bluestone capping and paving.

Two adjacent garden beds include shrubs and perennials in a restrained colour plate as requested by the client. A small but adequate lawn was provided for a small dog.

Fences were screened, and Pyrus calleryana ‘Capital’ was used on the back fence to disguise the two storey house behind. Succulents were planted under the eaves to avoid the need for year round irrigation along the wall of the house.
