Ashley James was delighted to be chosen to design and construct the St Kilda Courtyard for fan favourites Andy & Deb on the hit tv show The Block in 2019. This beautiful garden creates a lush forest in the heart of St Kilda, showcasing contemporary design in a residential and commercial landscaping setting.
The project was underpinned by Ashley James' expertise in transforming difficult sites into dream landscapes. The design carefully considered the needs of the modern family, creating a multi-functional space that transitions from play area to entertaining area. The garden incorporates a stunning blend of natural elements, with hand-crafted hardwood and stone features.
The final result was a gorgeous space that the family can use and cherish for years to come. The St Kilda Courtyard is an example of Ashley James' commitment to quality and excellence, and his ability to bring a family's vision to life.
