Bachelor Pad Garden

By Henley On Thames garden designer Jo Alderson Phillips. This courtyard garden was designed for a newly single man who wanted a space in which to party!

He wanted the scheme to look like "..a posh yacht!" Cumuru decking was used and bespoke furniture designed to create raised beds, an in-built seating area, a raised Koi pool and a fantastic water wall.

The raised beds give a great feeling of height and add places to perch for guests too. The mirrors extend the space and bring in the light. The planting scheme has been designed for structure, colour and scent to ensure maximum enjoyment whilst amidst it.
