Although generally small, courtyard gardens can be beautiful spaces in which to relax, escape and entertain. They may be shady and overlooked by neighbouring buildings, but they can also be warm and sheltered, allowing you to grow a wide range of interesting and more tender plants. The whole of the courtyard garden can often be seen from indoors, so careful and clever thought needs to be given to storage and reprocessing areas, and evergreen elements are essential.
Sussex Courtyard Garden Design
A small but perfectly formed town house courtyard garden in Chichester, comprising of brick raised beds with knapped flint inserts, riven sandstone slabs and rosemary quartzite gravel. A shed, retractable washing line and bin area are all hidden in the back section of the garden, screened from site by both planting and contemporary fencing panels.
