Parry Street Residence
Inner city warmth
One small, stark inner-city backyard, two young children, a mum and a dad keen to grow fresh veggies for the family and find a quiet spot to kick back in the sun, a modest budget, and a passion for sustainability.
Sometimes limited choice can be a beautiful thing, and that’s certainly true for this design.
Raised garden beds constructed from recycled railway sleepers make the most of a northerly aspect. Recycled bricks form a generous curve of seating perfectly placed to soak up the sun and create an attractive focal point. Bright red chillies and vibrant purple basil spill out of a recycled-timber green wall that increases the planting area while providing privacy. A generous lawn using the existing turf flows from the back of the house, inviting myriad possibilities for play.
Warmth, texture, expansiveness. ✔️
A family garden with something for everyone. Most definitely. ✔️✔️
Mark Tisdell surprised and delighted us with his innovative design. Consultations with Mark have been comfortable and he was always willing to discuss any of our reservations, queries and suggestions.
Mark Tisdell from MUD nailed it with the first design concept! And was able to bring this to life with detailed plans that enabled us to get a better idea of how it would look when finished.
I found Mark to be very courteous, polite, punctual and easy to work with. Mark provides a very high level of service and my garden is now an area that I can sit in, relax and enjoy.
We are loving our new garden and shed! Mark Tisdell from MUD was very accommodating, easy to work with, and listened to our design aims.
Meeting times were easy to arrange, plans were delivered as promised and his relationship with Aaron has certainly made the project uncomplicated to manage.
The level of service was great, Mark was available to answer the many questions we had regarding plant and materials along the way.
I couldn’t be any happier with the transformation. It has exceeded all my expectations!
We were very satisfied with MUD’s design process. Mark was willing to re design any detail until we were completely happy.
The garden, while a work in progress, is dramatically different and is already a joy to view. We are looking forward to seeing it mature!
This project changed the way our home and interior exterior living works. With a beautiful outlook from every angle and entertaining options for not just summer, but winter as well. We couldn’t be happier with the result!
I would highly recommend Mark Tisdell to anyone in need of a Landscape Architect.
Mark was flexible with meeting times, and comprehensive in resourcing materials and services for our building and gardening work.
I have already recommended Mark from MUD to a few friends!
We now have a wonderful and inviting garden and living area where we previously did not use the existing space!
