Small city garden, part sun/full shade, adult family.
“I’d like you to improve the garden’s appearance overall, and to make it more inviting for guests”.
Our garden ‘nip and tuck’ service makes the best possible use of a small shaded courtyard space, giving it a fresh contemporary feel, with minimal intervention to existing elements. Containerised specimen planting at key locations provide strong points of focus, and a sense of formality. Pot plant selection includes a number of structural evergreen shrubs, perennials, grasses, and bulbs, creating year round displays of colour, texture and form. The rear bare red brick wall is softened by a climbing hydrangea attached to a new high-tech steel wire grid. A centrally located large terracotta pot planted with a tall umbrella-like tree fern, provides a degree of sheltered privacy, and adds a little drama to the scene.
Variety of medium to large contemporary pots, architectural planting, stainless steel wire plant support.
