Courtyard Garden Design, Reading, Berkshire

Design brief:
The clients ground floor flat came with this outside space but they never used it.

It seemed too big a job to tackle without expert help. Pete Sims was asked to survey the site and produce a design to give the area interest and become a place to entertain whilst remaining secluded from the other residents.

Pete could see the potential in the space and wanted to create an intimate and lushly planted courtyard space.

Pete used raised planter beds in green oak with Indian stone paving. Raised oak trellis and a bespoke oak pergola canopy enclosed the impressive courtyard style garden with a mix of small and instant planting.

Design fee: circa £350

Project duration: 3 weeks using a team of 3-4 men
