A North facing courtyard


A colourful mosaic, created by a local artist provides the backdrop for a narrow channel of water which splashes down onto large pebbles surrounded by lush ferns and creates that wonderful sound of water running! The patio area is small but the walls of the raised beds provide extra seating.

Plant pockets in the walls and the gravel are filled with oregano, thyme and chives. This courtyard is a tiny, tucked away haven for the client and requires minimal maintenance.

    My garden was transformed from a drab, dark courtyard to a delightful space which continues to please. Marianne's design work was imaginative whilst using every nook and cranny to its full potential, showing many great concepts and ideas to draw from for our ultimate design. The work was carried out with speed and dedication with problems solved quickly along the way. Once the garden was planted up we sat back, watched it all grow, enjoying the sound of the water feature in the background. Loved the service, love the garden!
