“Gardening is learning learning learning. That is the fun of them. You’re always learning.”
Garden type: Contemporary outdoor room
Garden designer: Keltie and Clark
On arrival the courtyard was very uninviting with high walls which felt very claustrophobia and gravel everywhere. We turned it into a garden that welcomed people in.
The garden design
We were briefed by the client to include lots of green plants that would give a splash colour yet still look smart.
The clients wanted a garden that would bring all the family together, a space to entertain friends both during the day and night. The courtyard had to feel like a continuation of the bar and games area they had inside the house.
We included the soft texture for their Chocolate Labrador to sit and play while the rest of the family enjoyed the water feature and kept warm by the fire.
