Port Melbourne

Here in Port Melbourne the client wanted to make use of the somewhat small and wind swept elevated deck in order to grow some food for their adjacent kitchen.

These clients are pretty keen collectors and recyclers so
they already had a bunch of materials and off-cuts which I was able to re-organise into garden structures...

... a pot stand for herbs.

We also had some boxes made up which were lined and turned into 'wicking garden' beds.

Plants have both thrived and died in this challenging space. The wind is always a factor but not half as damaging as the wildlife!

A work still in progress, the next stage will be getting climbers established on the windwood side and above to provide a sheltered sitting environment.
