Throughout the years, a lot has changed in the way residential properties Down Under are designed and built. Homes constructed in the 1980s, for instance, have a somewhat different look from those built in succeeding decades. In terms of design and function, the backyard has undergone a notable transformation.
Experts have observed that in general, backyards in Western Australia these days are much smaller, easier to maintain, and more modern in appearance. So-called designer backyards now typically range in size from 50-100 metres (as opposed to 150 metres in earlier years), have much smaller gardens, and sport neutral but sophisticated colour schemes. That being said, you need not sacrifice child’s play or outdoor recreation even if you have rather limited backyard space.
