Courtyard Garden, Bath
Introduction of the dark stained decking meant the abrasive, worn patio could be banished, already making a huge difference to the garden. Planted walls were added to break up the monotonous brickwork and shabby looking boundaries, adding life and vibrancy to the scheme. It is difficult to add planting to scheme like this on occasion due to a lack of space, wall planting is a great way to flood your small garden with nature to create a small oasis whilst not cluttering up limited floor space.
Other alterations to the boundaries included creating the white planting boxes surrounding the seating area. This planting border sections off the space and makes it a separate hideaway to the rest of the exterior. Denoting this space with the border gives it presence and appeal, rather than a drab and wasted area that would otherwise be ignored. It draws the eye to the new revitalisation and makes it a space that people now wish to inhabit. The stark contrast of modern colour and materials to the natural planting and textures of the brick and timber give the space a 21st-century twist. A space that offers a natural oasis as required, however, doubles up as a relaxing, modern entertaining area.
