Not all courtyards are the same. There is no ‘one’ solution to all. Yours may have some bare ground to plant into, paving may already be in place, or decking. Then there is the aspect; full sun, no sun, morning sun, possums, access to water, is there a tap or not, the list goes on.
In this instance we were asked to ‘green up’ the courtyard. The space has a lovely back drop of canopy trees with decking in the courtyard. We installed a series of pots and planters with advanced plants to suit this shady site. The screens have been custom made and are freestanding so we didn’t have to be concerned with attaching any fixings to the walls. They can be moved easily, either to reposition or
if and when our client moves, to another place.
This courtyard will soon be full of green growth, with vertical walls of green to break up the brick, the Magnolias will meet the tree canopy and the pots will be softened by violets trailing over the edges.
