Fab Spring Colour!

A little bit a sculpture enhanced by primroses and muscari.

The amazing blue of Veronica.

Sunny Coastal Courtyard

The clients in Tintagel had initially only a tiny sliver of a garden wrapping around their conservatory, surrounded by a fence.....
then they were able to acquire just a couple more metres in depth....the fence was removed first....

The new garden design includes a rendered wall to enclose the garden and create a walled courtyard.  The garden faces south and the space is very hot and sunny in the summer months.  In built seating helps to maximise the space, as well as raised beds running around the enclosing wall.

A built in water feature was discussed, but the clients preferred the idea of a self contained water feature that could be slotted into the raised bed, and moved around if necessary.
Lighting was set into the seating.
There is also room still for a good size table and chairs.
The stone detailing matches the detailing on the house, which is also rendered.

Palms and planting for hot conditions were chosen, as well as being low maintenance.

We've had lovely client feedback already....
'It's perfect, we are chuffed to bit as to how it's turned out, thank you so much for all your help.'
