b'a floating bridge creates mystery and privacyKirsten Sach suggests this alternative scheme:This is a contemporary garden with an Eastern influence, inspired by the existing maple in the garden. Plastered and painted block walls create clean lines while retaining and dividing the garden. The floating decking bridge, which is underlit at night, takes you on a journey to a private shaded seated area. The wall to the right of the bridge is painted the warm neutral Resene Napa while the wall behind the timber seat is in Resene Triple White Pointer to accentuate the golden bamboo canes behind. A simple palette of plants has been chosen and mass planted to create impact and structure using Ligularia reniformis, Bambusa Alphonze Karr, Dietes bicolour with a colour palette of fresh greens and warm neutrals. The timber vitex decking is finished in Resene Furniture and Decking Oil for a natural finish. phone09 818 2827 mobile021 755 967 emailksach@xtra.co.nzReseneTriple MasalaDietes bicolour (wild iris)Exposed aggregate concrete from your local specialist supplierResene HalfVitex decking Rice CakeResene Herman PacificEvolutionwww.hermpac.co.nzfinished in Resene Furniture and Decking OilResene www.resene.com Gondwanaillustration Resene Bruce Bryant NapaBambusa Alphonze Karr Ligularia reniformis 95'
