Courtyard Garden

< back to portfolio

This courtyard is attached to an old cottage and the intention was to make it look as though it had always been there. The small walls were built in rubble stone to match the stone work of the cottage. The divided beds, fountain and rose arch add an air of formality and structure to an otherwise completely 'cottagey' garden. Surrounding the courtyard are 4 flowering cherry trees which will provide pink profusion in the spring. The garden was planted late Oct. 2009 so has yet to burst forth into a frothy flowery cottage garden. Watch this space!!
