Modern Courtyard

Design Brief

A small courtyard garden in London needed a private space for retreating from the hectic life of London. Surrounded on all sides by buildings and small trees, planting had to be shade tolerant and still provide colour and interest. New walls were introduced with sympathetic materials and the plant species chosen all prior to an introduction date of 1900.

A timber sleeper water feature was introduced as the garden was a 2 minute walk from Waterloo East station. The sounds of Big Ben in the distance added to the period character of the planting.
