For the paving underneath the pergola, you can use circular pattern brick edged shingle, pavers, sets, or simple bricks. You can also buy garden edging products by clicking at diy garden edging & border in Australia – kid-friendly edging

You can use the same material normally of square shape used to construct the patio and the brick is used to cover the edges. This is so because; there is some angular cutting of the slabs due to which some pieces of the slabs acquire odd shape at the edges, therefore edging or use of brick becomes necessary. Make sure that the bricks you used for this purpose are of top quality and have well resistant against different weather conditions.

You can add some attractive features in your garden in the form of a raised brick bed on the right side with sun-loving herbs, shrubs, and climbers to prosper.

The entrance of the garden is made in the wall with a reasonable size of a gate under the pergola. The pergola is created with pressure treated timber, sawn, and is about 1.2 m (7 feet) high to support the proper growth of the climbers.

Normally no central support is required for pergolas made of cross timbers, as they are heavy enough and hold their place firmly. In that case, adding a water feature in the center of the pergola, the paving used to connect the pergola with the furthest end of the garden.

While setting up fences make sure that the shady area at the end of the garden is reserved for soft fruits and vegetables. Soft fruits and vegetables grow well in shades so utilize this area in a positive way. You can use a trellis with a screening of evergreen climbers to conceal this area from the view.

Along side, the gate would be the shed, which is used to store the general stuff, compost, and garden rubbish. As the borders of the family gardens are quite narrow, maintenance would not be a problem.
