    Created in August 2010

    Taking the outside in and the inside out was the easy part for this new outdoor room, which measures a mere 6m x 5m, a total surface area of 30m2.

    It involved select planting to remove the view of the neighbour’s recently renovated 5m+ high studio at rear of their property and raised planters around the boundary to create additional seating.

    Eighteen months on and the screening plants have achieved the task of rendering the neighbour’s studio out of sight, and the bonus is, it's created a living wall of green. Low voltage garden lighting on the face of the planter boxes as well as uplighting to the Ornamental Pears adds to the ambience and a sliding rear door to the rear garage has maximisd space.

    So don’t despair if your neighbour’s decide to renovate or extend. With a little bit of planning you too can create your own intimate outdoor green living room.
