courtyard garden in mews house in Chislehurst

We've just finished this garden (June 2013), so it needs to bed in a little and the feature plants need to grow and soften the hardscapes, but we are really pleased with the results so far.

Our clients live in a Mews House in Chislehurst, their garden was filled with builders leftover block pavers, soulless and uninviting when I first arrived to pick up the initial brief.

It now looks like this!

This small courtyard garden now has two deck terraces (millboard eco decking) divided by sandstone planking from CED blended with boulders and pebbles of various sizes. The trellis panels have been made on site using western red cedar.

Material selection is so important, combining the right materials that blend together or contrast in colour and texture, keeping within the context of the house and setting are key points to achieving a successful garden. We worked closely with the landscaper on this one to ensure all the finer details were delivered in this very small space.
