Contemporary Courtyard Garden Design in Cirencester, Gloucestershire By Jill Blackwood Garden Design.
Delighted with Jill’s design for our garden. Listened to our input and delivered a stunning design which the builders turned into a quality piece of work. David Wallis
Mr and Mrs Wallis required a contemporary courtyard garden design that would provide them with a garden they could relax in and enjoy, with a feeling of enclosure and calm. The design uses smooth natural sandstone to blend with the client’s Cotswold stone house. The tones of golden flint gravel to provide texture and a subtle contrast. The raised planters were smooth rendered and painted a light cream shade to blend with the lighter tones in the sandstone paving and flint gravel. The colours of the landscaping materials were chosen to bring a feeling of unity and calmness to the space. A mix of evergreen plants such as Phormium, Palms, Fatzia and Heuchera provide colour, texture and structure all year round and add a touch of the Mediterranean. Grasses were added for additional texture giving a softer feel to the planting. Perennials like Hellebore, Salvia and Geraniums were chosen to add warmth and a touch of colour and interest in different seasons, particularly through the summer months.
