This small Sydney garden has been revived as an idyllic and productive hideaway with the help of landscape firm Outdoor Establishments, who delivered a user friendly space complete with its own herb garden
Proving that you don't need a large space to grow your own, this raised herb bed, made out of recycled sandstone, makes gardening easier on the back as well as delivering a place to sit while pottering
Every bit of the small urban plot is being used, making it more functional and structured. There's space for a table and bench seating – great for a small zone as it can be tucked underneath the table when not in use – and even room for a cosy relaxing spot.
Three is never a crowd when you're grouping pots in your garden. Select similar shapes and colours for high impact and to really set off an unused corner
Perfectly in keeping with the 19th century home's classic facade, the original front verandah plays host to a chic 'Barwon' teak-and-wicker armchair and solid teak 'Airlie' side table from Eco Outdoor, as well as a range of potted agaves and succulents. A graphic cusion from Adam Robinson Design adds a soft element
