• Courtyard garden

    Designed for a couple keen on gardening, this small garden is packed with detail for year-round interest. A multi-toned slate paving outlined in brick was chosen as the background for a profusion of summer colour. The borders feature white Floribunda roses, grasses, Rudbeckia, cat mint, and lavenders, while the upright form of Skyrocket junipers punctuates the more ephemeral planting. A David Harber sundial provides a focal point when viewed from the main windows within the house, and a stone water feature trickles gently by a shady seating area. Subtle lighting creates an ideal space for summer evening entertaining.
