Private Courtyard Garden

Design Brief

As with all the best designs, simplicity is the key to creating a successful space. For this small project we had a blank lawn area surrounded by tall box hedges.

The home was a period setting, with strong architectural lines and beautiful stone work so the garden had to complement it without clashing in terms of styling or layout.

The circular nature of the design is very simple and easy to look after, with a quiet place for seating and enjoying the plants as they travel throug the four seasons.
