Contemporary Courtyard Buckingham

PROJECT INFO: New Build House

LOCATION: Buckingham, Buckinghamshire

 

This garden had become overgrown and lacked definition. The brief from the client was to create a lawn free space with distinct areas for dining, relaxing and entertaining. Outdoor cooking was a priority and the garden includes a BBQ, pizza oven and smoker.

A contemporary Morso fireplace allows the garden to be used long into the evening. Slatted fence panels combined with the existing brick walling provide an interesting textural backdrop to the planting.

Sets of steps in different styles connect the spaces together with planting in large groups (stop, verbena, echinacea) used for visual interest, texture and volume.
