An example of a client's brief.
Our client needed to create a modern courtyard garden in this small space seen in the photo above. The large besser block wall at the rear was intimidating and made the space look even smaller. The view below shows the contemporary veranda designed to provide shade in the afternoon whilst still allowing a view to the sky from indoors. The planting, whilst drought tolerant needed to look fresh, cool and green.
A zigzag path of pebbles edged with pavers leads to a mirror creating interest, distance and the illusion of a bigger garden. The besser block wall once bagged and painted becomes an integral part of the garden and looks more like a dividing wall than a boundary.
