Outdoor Establishments: Woolloomooloo Courtyard

Today on The Outdoor Collective, we focus on a courtyard project designed and constructed by Outdoor Establishments. A small space in Woollomooloo that exudes liveability, practicality and functionality.

Outdoor Establishments commenced work on “The Moo Project” in 2014. This inner-city courtyard was designed with a few things in mind; privacy, entertaining and most importantly, to maximise the utilisation of the limited but very valuable space.

With the neighbouring properties peering directly into the rear garden, privacy was paramount, so Outdoor Establishments designed and constructed a recycled timber boundary fence, bringing a warm texture to the space. Pyrus calleryana ‘Cleveland Select’ was then planted around the perimeter which provided instant screening and stunning seasonal foliage.

The plants used within the design include Philodendron xanadu, Sanseveria, Magnolia grandiflora ‘Teddy Bear’, Dichondra Silver Falls, Mandevilla ‘red riding hood’ and Ficus lyrata “because it couldn’t be a cool, funky garden without one.”
Strategically, the planting was placed towards the boundary of the property which allowed the client maximum floor space. The durable marble paving doubles as a large entertaining area dressed with Tait furniture and fire pit, or, if needed, a place to park the family car.
