Redesign of a Pretty Courtyard Garden in Dunmow, Essex

The Clients had a small courtyard garden in Dunmow, Essex directly off the kitchen. The brief was to create an area for entertaining which was contemporary but also functional.

We developed a design which was uncluttered but yet which still allowed for soft planting, a trickling water feature and room for the household bins!

The paving was travertine with small setts to give definition and the planting was into raised oak beds as well as clearly defined ground level beds to give movement and softness without encroaching into the tight space. The fencing was Quercus fencing in natural Oak, giving a solid boundary from the neighbouring garden, yet with a natural, organic feel.

A lovely job and some very satisfied customers!
