Courtyard Garden,

A courtyard garden within a gated community. Intended primarily for use as a pied à terre, our brief was to create a stylish, low maintenance garden using containers throughout.

We created a framework of mature box balls in fine contemporary terracotta pots to unify the irregular shape of the garden. The planting was softened with Libertia formosa with its swordshaped leaves and white flowers in May, the evergreen climber Trachelospernum jasminoides with its scented flowers in June and whole pots of white narcissus followed by deep purple tulips and then french lavender - for long lasting pools of rich mauve in summer.
