Hi from Sydney, Australia
« on: July 16, 2009, 03:24:27 AM »
Hi,

I've been working on a small courtyard garden over the last few years when I have time.
The courtyard faces east and is 5m wide and 5.4m deep (~16.5 x 17.5 feet).

The pic was taken the morning of the June Solstice (our Winter Solstice).
It is somewhat contrived as there are window frames that partially block a normal view. I'll post another pic in next post.
The fisheye effect is because the camera is up against the center window and needed several shots to cover the garden.

cheers Tygar.

Here is an image of the courtyard from inside.
The window frame obscures some of the garden but perhaps encourages people to step to the window for a closer look..

Hi Tygar,
It's very nice done job. I am really like texture of mondo grass, especially low one ( I think its "minor").

Hi,
Welcome to the forum. You have a very nice garden, nice white walls. The only question I had was, there seems to be a larger stone in front of the water basin, but how do you get to it? Wouldn't there naturally be a few other stones leading out to this primary stone and water basin? Just some food for thought :)

Hi T!
I also live in Sydney and slowly doing my backyard... Your courtyard looks and feels GREAT! What is the plant on the very bottom right? By the tree foot?!
I have planted some Mondo Grass in some areas and Dichondra Repens (A native) ground cover...
I'm new to this forum and I'm already finding great resources!
Cheers,
Vince.
