After their bungalow was extended and totally modernised their attention was focused on the muddy patch of lawn remaining. An active elderly retired couple with a great interest in plants and gardens decided they would like a low maintenance plant packed, private courtyard style garden. All the turf was removed, a good sized patio laid and deep planting borders created. Even though the garden is small a staggered central trellis divided the garden into two creating the sense of space and discovery. A palette of green and white for the planting with the emphasis on foliage colour and textures created a secluded outside room.

“This is now the third garden you have designed for us. This time we required a simple, low maintenance, modern concept within a small space and as usual you took on board our brief and came up with the goods. Your gardens have helped sell our homes and if we move again we would have no hesitation in having you design the next one. You have some wonderful ideas. Many thanks.”
