Contemporary Courtyard Garden Design 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 modern/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.
