Modern House on small block - 730m2
i have a small alfresco out the back of house, which i would like to make into outdoor dining area.
Most of the backyard has turf laid, and a narrow retaining wall with shrub/grass plants etc across the back fence.
One side of house is has turf laid, other side is just weeds and mud.
Would like an area for fire and relaxing, maybe round the side of house ?- see blue drawing on pic
i need something from laundry door (next to bins) to the clothes line - currently walking through mud.
not sure of best way to incorporate all this, to make a practical yet inviting area.?
the front of house we dont know where to start. thinking of just plain old colourbond fences across each side.
im not majorly into the traditional type rose/cottage garden. i Like modern, with character.
should we plant a tree in right side of garden?
do we need a retaining wall at front or leave turf as is?
i need some help designing this please, without the project being too costly.
