The Courtyard Garden in Cobham
The Brief The brief for this rather discouraging garden was to make it accessible from the new kitchen extension, to be used as an ‘outside room’ for eating and relaxing, with improved privacy and ease of maintenance.
The Design Now it's re-designed on two levels, and in constant use as an outside dining area and relaxing space. Fragrant climbers are already spreading over the blue-green trellis, and all the other plants are low maintenance. Foliage and flower colours are reflected in the furnishings and painted shed and trellis.
