A Courtyard Garden In Wilmslow

A courtyard garden in Wilmslow was in need of new design inspiration to bring it to life. The client's garden was an awkward wedge shaped space mainly laid to lawn that was struggling to survive in the shady conditions. Privacy was not an issue but giving the space a strong sense of identity was essential.

A series of square spaces were created within the triangular space, each one providing an open area for either dining or seating and laid with sandstone paving. The voids left between the squares and the boundary fence woudl become the planting beds, filled with lots of lush shade tolerant greenery.

The finished design just works so well in the awkward shaped space. Louise brought my ideas to life in a more imaginative way than I could ever have dreamed.

To add height to the space, we introduced two wooden arches which reflect vertically the square geometry as set out on the horizontal plane. This also allowed us to plant two wisteria which were on the client's wish list of plants. The arches lead you through the space from one area to the next. The space between the arches is an area for solitary reflection, with the existing Magnolia creating a shade seating area.

A stainless steel water feature was added within one of the planting borders, joined to a rill which moved out into the main squares of paving and filling a square reflective pool. A half hidden wooden bench was built at the edge of the planting, somewhere permanent to sit and look back across the garden from a different direction.
