This Amazing Garden Design By Alison Douglas Is Truly A ‘Pipe Dream’
There is no surprise this is the garden that won 2015 Melbourne International Flower And Garden Show’s first prize in the Boutique Garden category. Aptly named ‘Pipe Dream’ it features industrial concrete pipes of various diameters that make the garden’s seat, water feature, fire pit, and cacti container garden.
‘Pipe Dream’ Garden
The seat is spacious and stylish but it also provides some sun protection. While the body of the pipe creates a bit of privacy the built-in wooden slabs serve as a seat and the ceiling into which the lights are built. The concrete frames at the sides house small bushes while greenery also makes a backdrop for the seat.
The smaller pipe make for a fire pit but the coolest thing is that it is connected to the larger water-filled pipe. The area around is planted with grass and succulents. Bigger cacti plants are contained in a bigger pipe pot.
The stone steps fit ideally into the garden concept and make the grass interrupt and continue in a beautiful way.
What do you think? Isn’t it just a dream garden?
