Tara's design is called "The Gourmet Garden". Inspired by permaculture and edible forests, she is looking to introduce sustainable gardening into an urban setting where everything has a purpose. Tara's garden has a vertical grow wall for herbs and vegetables, rainwater collection for watering plants and an aquaponics system using fish to grow herbs. A patio area with built in seating and a cocktail table as a centre piece, will house her aquaponics system. A breeze block feature wall will bring some all year colour to the garden, using a colour palette of blues and dark pinks inspired by Homeowner, Youssef's Moroccan heritage. A small potting shed has also been incorporated into the design.
The family brief asked for sensory elements in the garden for youngest child Laila so Tara has designed a play pod inspired by the Japanese pod hotels with plenty to keep her interested. The planting scheme also has a sensory element throughout the garden, with fragrant and edible plants and shrubs as well as tall grasses and fruit trees. A separate area for the kids is connected to the patio area by a pathway under planted with camomile lawn. In the kids area Tara has designed a pergola with swinging chair under which she plans to plant tall grass and a camomile lawn for low maintenance.
