Stay at home mum, Jocelyn and husband lawyer Mark have lived in their two story federation home for just six months. While their home has been completely architecturally designed and renovated, they have not yet touched the garden.
Having lived in an inner city apartment with their three kids for the past five years, they are desperate to have an outdoor space the whole family can enjoy. This family has essentially been living in a holding pattern, saving money for their dream home and garden. With the house finished, it’s time for a garden to complete the package.
They want a space for the kids to play in but also for the adults to entertain in and enjoy; a green space where they can teach their kids to live in an eco-friendly way; storage for everything their modest inner city home can’t handle; and to re-route the sump pump to irrigate the garden.
Previously a market research analyst, Jocelyn admits that she and Mark are pretty conservative people. But they love the idea of working with a designer who can help them move out of their comfort zone and embrace an adventurous design. Having worked with an architect on their home – they aren’t afraid to speak their mind to make sure that the garden suits their growing family.
