FAIRVIEW COURTYARD GARDEN
This young family wanted me to design an under utilised back garden to enable them to entertain friends and family in the summer.
The design had to be relatively low maintenance so I included a raised bed surrounding the dining area filled with ornamental grasses, standard bay/olive underplanted with spring flowering bulbs and summer perennials for year-long interest. For pops of colour, pots were dotted around the garden.
A swing chair was located in the corner of the garden and underplanted with lavender for scent and colour and a globe water feature was included in the opposite corner for a gentle sound to aid the tranquil atmosphere on sunny days.
