The initial layout of this rural garden was pretty poor. There was very little attention to structure and the landscaping choices were ugly and detrimental to the existing planting.
I set out to create a garden that softened the impact of the hard landscaping; keeping that balance between functionality and aesthetics.
The variety of on site conditions made creating a cohesive planting scheme a little tricky; the garden transitions between sunny terrace to shady woodland edge in a matter of a few steps.
What was achieved was an attractive courtyard garden with a distinct nod towards alfresco living. The planting has matured and separated the space into a variety of interesting and vibrant areas.
