Kensington Courtyard Garden Design

The brief was to maximise the use of this limited space and provide a dramatic backdrop to the various reception rooms articulated around it.

We used 600x600 Vestra limestone slabs and a fine detailing of black pebbles to create the floor surface and installed living green walls around the space, to provide a tapestry of green with highlights of soft colour and scent throughout the year.

A full height water wall feature in slate with powder coated frame offers gentle sound and clean lines of western red cedar trellis in horizontal slatted design frame the area.

This patio is now a joy to watch throughout the year, as plants successively bloom and attract bird life. Creative lighting expends the garden's usability and provides a stunning setting at night.

The garden in neatly illuminated with garden lighting transforming the space into an attractive an inviting space in the evening.

We also installed a soft green carpet of Sedum over the asphalt roof, at the upper level of the house.
