Shirley understands that a garden design isn't just for now, it will last well into the future so making clever design choices will make your life easier as you get older

Shirley's Tips

  • A wheelchair access ramp may become an important addition to the front of your home as you get older. Typically access ramps can be unsightly, but by placing the ramp behind a raised garden bed you'll hide the ramp and create a gorgeous feature at your front door
  • Ensure your raised garden beds are at a comfortable sitting height so as you get older you can sit on the edge to pick your herbs or weed out the soil
  • If adding a spa into your outdoor garden design, recess it in to avoid the need for steps which could prove troublesome later on down the track
