A garden can be a series of outdoor rooms or wide open spaces contrasted with intimate courtyards.
This private garden has not one but two courtyards.
And I haven’t used regular plants either - I’ve gone for espaliered forest pansies because they’re a feature in themselves, which complement the oversized fireplace.
And in the raised bed, I’ve planted herbs off the kitchen, for ease of access.
Seating needed high consideration too. We’ve got soft lounges to relax on in front of the fire, and a copper hanging chair for a bit of fun.
