For an authentic countryside vibe, the courtyard was abundant with yellow and cream plants. This includes yellow roses and creamy climbing plants that made their way up the wall at the back of the courtyard. On the other side of the drive, which was more exposed, blues, pinks and yellows were used for variety. The drive was edged with lower box hedges, with evergreen clipped pillars equally spaced down either side.
With Cheshire brick raised beds and sandstone copings, the centre of the courtyard was formed. With this cam ground borders and connected paths and terrace areas made from York stone. We then placed cattle drinking troughs in the courtyard as a nod to the history of the farm. To the other side of the drive, a lawn is separated by borders and timber arches. Finally, the bed backing the barn has tall trees and shrubs.
