New housing development. 

­New housing development.  

Brief:

  • Five small courtyard gardens.
  • Minimal planting – something to climb the wall.
  • Space for table, chairs and BBQ.

Challenge:

  • Adding depth through planting within a very small space.
  • No pots.
  • Small budget. 

 

 

Solution:

  • Patio of multi size sandy colour flagstones (wide grout lines) to fit building style and help reflect light.
  • Modern slatted fence creating an open feel.·        
  • L-shaped beds to bring the eye around the space rather than hitting the back wall!
  • Each courtyard has it’s own style suiting each aspect but also giving buyers a choice: shady border, herb garden, soft prairie, and lush greens.
