This unusually shaped private plot is hedged off with thick shrubs and plants to ensure as much privacy as desired. The plot's unusual shape is to illustrate that this style of garden can be adapted to any plot shape.
The gazebo sits in a central position, allowing different viewpoints to the whole of the garden. The thick hedgerows and planting at the entranceway (2) ensure people entering the garden feel as though they are entering a private or enclosed area. This can be exaggerated further if an overhead pergola were to be included at the front of the gazebo at (3), one that was heavily covered in creeper and foliage.
Stepping stones are used across the lawn to give access to the outer regions of the garden. These can be added to or reduced depending on how much lawn space is desirable.
Trees are also used extensively throughout the design, again to provide privacy and shade; making this Thai landscape design a perfect relaxation area for a portion of your Thai garden.
