Modern Courtyard Garden

Design, Project Management and Planting: Katherine Edmonds Garden Design
Landscaping: Katherine Edmonds Garden Design

This modern courtyard garden makes good use of a small space with built-in seating amongst the planting. To tackle the northerly aspect the walls were painted a bright cream and the raised beds planted with lush evergreens and colourful flowering perennials.

This space was transformed into the perfect garden for entertaining in the city.

As seen at the Southbank Arts Trail 2006 and 2007.

Katherine and I built this garden in about 3 weeks; it was a tough, but very rewarding experience that made our enjoyment of the garden that much greater. It's a great space in which to hold BBQs and parties and with all the raised beds and planting it's easy to forget that you're in the middle of a city. Watching the plants change with the seasons and mature over the years has made a real difference to my enjoyment of this house.
