Given that Paddington is such a high density area and so close to the city we really wanted to make the most of our garden area by making it feel like a real sanctuary where we could relax and entertain without feeling like we were hemmed in like you can feel in an inner city suburb. So we entrusted 'Secret Gardens' www.secretgardens.com.au to design and construct our garden.

This was the inspiration.....

 

We wanted lush tropical surrounds

 

We wanted over hanging frangipani's; this image is from the villa we always stay at in Seminyak Bali www.nyamanvillasbali.com

 

We wanted lots of comfy seating...and a built in daybed

 

We wanted Bougainvillea....

 

And more bougainvillea...this image is from my Aunt's beautiful garden in Moree - the town which i was born!

 

We even requested mini banana's! but to my shock Secret Gardens informed me that this species is not allowed in NSW (the image is from Nyaman Villa Bali)

 

We wanted white concrete garden beds; this image was from a job secret gardens did in Woollahra

 

This is the design Secret Gardens came up with

 

And this is what the garden currently looks like..Deck just starting to be built...we have a long way to go!

 

This is a job Secret Gardens did in Avalon - i am guessing Ruskin Rowe? (a beautiful street in the centre of Avalon that has beautiful acreages)

 

Secret Gardens Longueville - thankfully they provide garden maintenance as well!

 

Cascading gardens in Seaforth..ammaazing

 

Recently completed Secret Garden in Woollahra...i could imagine my kids rolling down that grassy knoll

 

From the same Woollahra house..the prettiest cubby house i have ever seen complete with manicured hedge and creeping vine - lucky tenants!!
