A garden can be a relaxing oasis and a wonderful place to enjoy time with friends and family.
But if your backyard or front garden has been neglected for a while, it can be a little overwhelming and difficult to know where to start. It's often also not easy knowing what to do with narrow side access areas next to the house.
Fortunately, our clever and creative Bunnings Workshop community can provide plenty of advice and also the inspiration you need to pick up a tool and get cracking on transforming your garden.

This comprehensive backyard makeover included landscaping, decking, raised garden beds, screening, planting, and new turf. There's also a wonderful play area for the kids, with a cubby, sandpit and chalkboard.
Narrow areas down the side of a house can be tricky to work with, but this combination of decking and garden beds came up a treat. It’s a practical solution for easy access as well as creating a space for relaxing and enjoying the outdoors.
With very limited space to work with and a modest budget, a stark and unappealing garden was transformed into an attractive and functional space perfect for outdoor entertaining. The planter boxes clad with timber decking boards have been particularly popular with the community, and double as bench seats for socialising.
Wanting an attractive screening option for a sunny front yard on the NSW South Coast, Sue got expert advice about using Port Wine Magnolias as a hedge. The end result looks fantastic, utilising Camelia Sesanquas as well. We are looking forward to seeing them grow.
Workshop member James Peter has one of the most colourful gardens we’ve ever seen, combining beautiful flower displays with creative hand-built inhabitants like barnyard animal planters and even Daleks.
