Cottage Garden and Courtyard

A small fisherman’s cottage required the creation of a new courtyard garden to the rear and the reinstatement of the cottage garden to the front. 

The original back yard is transformed into a green oasis with raised borders full of lush green plants - the granite and slate paving provide a pleasant entertaining space for alfresco dining. 

Slate paving and wall coping create a traditional yet modern feel to the garden.

Troughs of bamboo are used to disguise the oil tank.

Three standard topiary bay trees provide instant height and form to the raised borders.

A private suntrap.

Oak fencing and balustrade link the garden with the materials of the house.

The small front garden is filled with agapanthus, hebes and hardy geraniums.

Slate paving and granite setts create an informal feel to the cottage garden.
