image gallery - East Side garden beds and Stairs: 2011
The east side of the property is the suniest and therefore has the best aspect for gardens. This side is often traversed to access the heater and hot water system, which sometimes needs relighting if their pilots blow out in strong winds. It is steep and slippery in the wet and so a combined terraced system of garden beds, and stairs ad ramps to provide access between the top level the middle level and lower level, and then across to the back door, was important. furthermore, the design featured multiple short decks on the lower section so that a ladder could be used in multiple places to assist in clean the roof on the lowest level. This roof collects the most crap as its right under a giant Eucalypt which drops a tom of leaves, branches and sap onto the roof.
The work was done in two sections: The garden boxes along the property line were build between December 2010 to January 2011, while the stairs, decks ad ramps were built between July to August 2011.
