Courtyard Garden

Courtyard Garden

Our client sought a courtyard garden with strong influential elements of a Mediterranean outdoor setting. This would be complemented by a contemporary water feature that inhabits fish. This garden would provide the client with a stunning outdoor space that can be enjoyed throughout the year.

Planting 


We have used a range of structural evergreen plants around the garden, as well as a large palm tree. There are also clipped box balls, an olive tree, a clip bay inspired box tree, and a wonderful tall cypress conifer. To border the garden, we used a range of herbaceous and grasses. These have been underplanted with vibrant tulips and alliums. Plants have been potted and grouped around the garden.

Design 


In the small courtyard you will find a cedar deck terrace just by the grey bi-fold doors. Towards the end of the left side we have added a square pond. There is a rendered brick wall that has been painted grey to match the walls in the kitchen. Heading towards the end of the garden you will see a summer house. This is painted the same colour to keep everything in theme. Finally, there is a staging area formed by large cretin jars.

See what some of our clients have to say about us!

From our very first contact to the moment our garden was finished we have been delighted with the work. We felt that they really wanted us to enjoy our garden and were excited by the project which gave us great confidence and belief. Our garden is now an extension of our living room and looks so much better than we could have ever anticipated.
I had engaged Taylor Barnes to design and build our garden at home in the UK. They took our brief, but rather than slavishly follow it, they emboldened and embellished it with their own ideas which complemented our initial thoughts. The result has been a fantastic garden that has given us 8 years of pleasure.
Having decided to create a special look to a farm courtyard I employed the services of Taylor Barnes. From the beginning the venture was exciting, and they were enthusiastic and creative. The design drawn was amazing and when it came to fruition I was more than pleased, it was every bit perfect.
After meeting with several garden designers we decided to choose Taylor Barnes because of their combination of design and building skills. Paul and his team were very pleasant to have around the house and were able to include last minute changes as the new garden evolved. We were so pleased with the outcome that we asked them to landscape our front garden last year as well.

Contemporary Gravel Garden
