Shady courtyard garden

By Garden Designer Adam S. Bailey. A shady courtyard garden within the sound of Big Ben, where form and texture take priority over colour.

A sensitive use of materials and period planting (all species introduced prior to 1900), provide a private sanctuary in a busy city. Lighting, hidden within the plants, offers a gentle ambience after dark. Architectural salvage, including chimney pots lend the garden a historical character appropriate for its setting.
