A Mud-Office designed garden in the heart of Northcote. The front is comprised of natives surrounded by compacted Tuscan toppings creating a softer feel than your typical concrete driveway. The brief was to remove all traces of lawn from the front so in place is a mass planting of Myoporum parvifolium whilst giving the feeling of lawn it needs no maintenance. The rear of this Northcote Californian bungalow opens up to a wide expanse of lawn perfect for a young family. The internal courtyard which is viewed from every shared living space has a simple pond and a beautiful feature tree to create calm.
