A small rear court yard needed to be an extension of the living space in this single fronted beach side home so an emphasis on function drove the garden design. White walls were used to help create the continuation of the internal colour palette. While polished concrete and a powder coated steel edge exaggerated the overwhelming greening aspect of this outdoor room. A simple garden layout adds an uncluttered space and fresh air to this small living space. Garden lighting shows off this this space at night without killing the mood.
