The existing small garden at this new house in East Bergholt had great potential, with a pleasant brick boundary wall and attractive garage building. JJ Garden Designs have created a courtyard style layout with extensive planting to provide a calming place to sit, eat and relax.
A secret oasis softened with plants
A generous terrace on which to enjoy the sun
Step out of the house into an exotic courtyard
Partially concealed amongst the planting, a large urn water feature gurgles softly, cooling the air. Picking up on the style of the boundary wall, a low, serpentine wall meanders behind the small table and chairs and through the planting. The style of planting mirrors the hot dry nature of the garden and gives the feeling of a more exotic, holiday climate.
