Discover What Backyard Designs Adelaide Landscape Designers Can Create.
A backyard can be an extension of what’s going on inside your home with regards to the theme, especially if you’re building a new home and the two spaces can be planned together. For most people though, the house is what it is and when deciding to renovate the back garden, the style can be what ever you want it to be, not necessarily matching what you have indoors.
Often though your taste in furniture, floorings prints on the walls and colours reflect a certain style that can continue outside.
You may like black and white for example, so a more modern look may suit. On the other hand you may like timber furniture and floor boards with a country feel to the kitchen, so a more Natural or Australian style could be looked at.
When looking at what Backyard Designs Adelaide landscape designers from Living Pictures By Tony Stanton can create for you, a few points are discussed and taken into consideration during the initial Concept Design session.
The size, shape and slope of the block, who’ll be using the garden, what separate spaces or areas you’d like and what elements or features you’d like to include along with what budget you have to turn your vision into reality once the softscape and hardscape construction plans have been finalised.
It pays to be frank and honest with regards to the amount of money you have available for the landscaping works.
Tony would love your dream to be realised and will gladly try to fit your wishes into your budget, but he has to know what that is. Many of the design elements can be selected to meet different budgets.
The size and species of plants, type of paver and retaining wall block, pool size etc. will all have an impact on the final build price.
Having over 30 years experience with backyard designs Adelaide based landscape designer Tony Stanton will amaze you with what’s possible, regardless of whether you have a courtyard, small back garden, typical 20M x 40M (800M²) size block, giving you about 300M² out back to use or your sitting on acreage.
Take a look at the conceptual images and pictures of back gardens shown below to give you some design ideas and examples of what’s possible with different sized blocks.
Courtyard Size Designs
Privacy & Lifestyle
Privacy is often a major consideration when working with outdoor living areas for courtyard homes, especially if pools or outdoor spas are included within the design.
Typically it’s single professionals or adult couples with hectic lifestyles wanting a space to relax and unwind, or to entertain with friends living in 1-2 bedroom courtyard or townhouse style apartments.
Small Back Garden Designs
Even on a small sized block, or a large block that’s mostly taken up with the house, like you see across suburbs such as Glenelg leaving only a small amount of space left for gardens, a lot can be accomplished with a good landscape designer.
Low maintenance landscaping ideas are often adopted so all that’s left to do is enjoy being outside, even when you think you don’t have much space to create something special.
Conventional Block Backyard Designs
Sometimes people can feel trapped inside the fences of their back garden, but this shouldn’t and doesn’t need to be the case.
With a landscape design that incorporates many different types of trees, shrubs and plants, you can feel like your sitting in the Botanical Gardens or your favourite park.
Many native plants will encourage beautiful parrots to become your neighbours.
With more space available, separate areas can be designed to cater for a number of different features.
Undercover outdoor entertaining areas for the parents to sit combined with an area of natural low maintenance lawn, decking for lounges to read a book while sunbathing or perhaps taking a dip in the pool can all be included in a backyard design bordered with plants for a conventional sized block.
Even if you’re on a severe sloping block, outdoor living and playing areas can be achieved by cutting into the slope.
Landscape designer and Horticulturist Tony Stanton can help you with selecting the right plants to give you different colours to look at all year round. With clever use of design, you can feel like you’re immersed within the garden, plus you have a Living Picture to look at through windows from the inside.
Hide The Fence
Apart from the aesthetic appeal, including plenty of foliage as a background can hide fences, giving you a more natural view to look at as you unwind or watch the kids play.
Taking advantage of your sloping block can create different levels of interest, or use retaining walls to flatten out a section giving you more useable space.
The choice is up to you, so what would you like?
Large Block Backyard Designs (Adelaide)
Most people buy large blocks because of the amount of useable land that comes with the house. Often though if all that space isn’t utilised well, your back garden can look barren and empty.
Just because you have a large block, doesn’t mean you need to spend a fortune on landscaping to fill it up, the same principals of landscape design apply, starting with what features and elements you would like. This is where the initial concept design meeting with Tony is invaluable in working out what’s possible within your budget, given you have lot’s of land to play with.
Most often though, people living on large blocks have bought it for the future, knowing exactly what they want to do, once they’ve saved up and with the kids now teenagers, it may be time for the back garden renovation you’ve always dreamt about to begin.
