A courtyard space that was dismal and dull has been paved throughout with pale natural stone and given focus with a small pool and fountain.
A typical small town backgarden, the owners wanted an easy maintenance, practical entertaining space for family parties. The sloping garden was transformed into two levels, with a large patio space for dining with extra seating on the low walls.
A new wall hides a utility area and the small border is densely planted in a white and purple colour scheme to harmonise with the painted walls.
Plenty of pots to contain both permanent and seasonal plantings are placed along the house walls to add to the enjoyment of this colour-coordinated suntrap.
An attractive water feature helps to mask external noise and provides a visual focus.
Colourful planting and a pergola seating area clothed with fragrant roses are viewed from across a calm green pool of lawn.
