Contemporary Courtyard Garden In Cirencester, Gloucestershire

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.
