Courtyard Garden, Primrose Hill
The challenge was to re-energise a dark and neglected space surrounded by high, rendered brick walls at the rear of a terraced Victorian house. A new garden would be in constant view from the client’s office. Our aim was to first maximise the potential of the space by introducing colour – we chose a rich terracotta for the back wall – and welsh slate as a surfacing material to balance the existing decking.
The planting scheme was kept simple: fresh and green throughout the year and yet with the capacity to surprise and delight with restrained dashes of rich colour and soft flower as the seasons progress.
