The garden design makes full use of half of the open space at the front of the house by providing an elevated pond, timber decking and a daybed. The main objective is to create attractive and highly usable space which  at the same time improve the existing internal space.

The built in timber benches on the pond wall provides seating options to guests and family when hosting a party or gathering. The wooden benches is an interesting detail that offers an attractive out look to the otherwise simple rectangular pond.

he living room can now be opened to the garden, making it spacious and airy with shades provided by the two trees and the focal view of the feature wall. The sound of trickling water from the feature wall and the surrounding greenery helps to cool down the atmosphere.

The timber decking works as an extension to the living room. The inviting daybed makes it an appealing place to relax, read a book or enjoy a cuppa. This well shaded area could also double up as a space to entertain guests with the fish providing a point of conversation.
