Size garden: 17m L x 17m W walled garden

The brief was to create a courtyard garden with a classical Italian inspiration for a renovated grade II listed barn and a new extension. The challenge was to create a journey through the garden with a sense of excitement, different zones and planting identities. The client did not want a lawn and so the design played with water to cool the newly paved space. The space was divided into a water garden with a long reflective pool and terrace for entertaining, long borders and terraces on two levels by the old barn. The client is a knowledgable gardener and we were able to design a scheme which had a wide variety of plants. The sculptures are the clients own from their previous garden.
