Looking Back At Our Favourite Garden Designs of 2019

Welcome to the jungle – sort of! These are our favourite gardens from 2019!

No matter if you prefer a leafy city rooftop, rugged native landscape, or perfectly manicured suburban lawn – we’ve got you covered with this epic lineup of inspiring green spaces!

A Space-Saving Courtyard That Makes Something From Nothing

If there was ever a test-case to convince doubters on the value of a landscape designer, then this revamped courtyard in Woodend by Kathleen Murphy Landscape Design (KLMD) is it.

Previously an uninspiring stretch of bare and bedraggled residential turf running beside the length of the house, the space is now a lush and functional outdoor room comprising timber decking, an outdoor seating area, pizza oven and integrated veggie patch. Transformations are one thing when you have good bones to work with, but here, KMLD has really made something from nothing.

A Sleek, Surprising Reworking Of A Victorian Cottage

When architect Blair Smith first met the owners of this Brunswick house, the three sat in the property’s original lean-to, wearing puffer jackets due to the almost untenantable temperature. 

While it was clear a new and improved extension with better thermal performance was required, Blair noted a poetic quality and modesty in the original structure he was keen to retain. 

The double-fronted cottage now sits alongside a new 51 square metre addition, achieving a high level of detail and finish, within a limited budget.
