City Courtyard



We have created many gardens for property developers over the years of which this is probably one of our most successful. This city courtyard garden was for the main show home in a development of apartments, originally part of the Harrods estate. It was effectively a roof garden with the challenge of high walls to three sides. A classic combination of oak Oxford Planters, furniture from Gaze Burvill and a planting of olive trees, lavender and other aromatics created a garden focussed in to the space. A Simon Percival water sculpture and lighting created views from the three sides of the apartment, which sold in record time.

“You did the best design ever and it was a major element in the success of the whole scheme. Fantastic. Shirley was right in her recommendation on day one. As we say in Ireland “one word, you’re the best” JMC
