This courtyard had a deck already to go, we just needed to do the courtyard design to complete the picture. Our brief, to create a green space with raised planters, soften the view and finish on all the fences, and some space to grow a few edibles.
Our solution, we installed planter boxes on castors for some flexibility and a mix of concrete pots with corten steel, to give some depth and interest to the garden space.
We often work with Future Environment, they build custom sizes for us, so we can mix it up depending on our courtyard design. http://www.futurenvironment.com.au/
Pots by https://potsnpots.com.au/ for some lovely (and heavy!) concrete pots.
