A new copper and glass extension to this 18th Century farmhouse left the courtyard garden needing to bridge the gap between modern extension and the rest of the garden. The brief was to create a space that looked beautiful year-round since it would always be on display from the new kitchen.
For the planting we interspersed formal domes of yew with wispy grasses complimented by pops of colour throughout the year from a selection of perennials and bulbs suited to this fairly dry and shady area.
A re-purposed copper cheese vat provided a wonderful focal point as a water feature.
