Tom and I were lucky enough to spend the Christmas holidays in one of our favourite spots, Bali. Bali is renowned for its beautiful gardens, so we thought we’d share some photos of gardens that caught our eye. Each have elements that can be easily adapted into small space gardens at home.
CONTEMPORARY GARDEN DESIGN
A beautifully crafted and composed garden. The built-in recessed table and seating area would be a great idea to incorporate into a small space courtyard design.
CLEVER PLANT SELECTION
The use of form, colour and texture of plants to create a naturally appealing landscape. Great inspiration for tropical planting schemes and selection here.
THE PERFECT PLUNGE POOL
The simplicity of this pool design with its wide dark lip and aqua colour interior framed by a natural tropical landscape just looks so inviting, don’t you just want to dive in?
PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES OF GARDEN DESIGN
Here is an inventive approach to small space gardening. When there is little space – why not go vertical and create a plant monument. The rustic timber columns make an impressive statement.
A CLEVER USE OF A SMALL SPACE
Small terracotta planters hung on a steel mesh screen create a decorative feature to this shopfront. This idea would work well on a small space balcony or courtyard wall.
THE ULTIMATE DECK!
We want this at our place – bar, view and music included of course!
You can always tell a great garden design, it looks comfortable in it’s surrounds, like it was meant to be there. Absolutely beautiful!
Happy New Year everyone!
