A Perfect Family Garden In Camberwell
Ian and his team at Ian Barker Gardens were engaged by the owners of this garden, surrounding a gorgeous old home in the Melbourne suburb of Camberwell, to design and build a garden for their large family in 2015.
Responding to new additions to this gorgeous old home by architects Herbert and Howes, the garden’s lines are simple and elegant. ‘We really toned down the garden,’ Ian says. ‘It’s restrained, yet it has a huge impact.’ Part of the success of the garden, according to Ian, is its relationship with the architecture. ‘Without the backdrop of the pavilion, the garden wouldn’t look anywhere near as good as it does today’, he says.
