The design of this courtyard garden uses level changes and horizontal lathed fence panels coupled with mirrors and architectural planting to maximize the sense of space.
The design is simple and uncluttered with every plant chosen for greatest impact, while the use of richly coloured finishes adds warmth to what could otherwise be an uninviting space. The cistern type water feature provides movement and soothing sound to the courtyard and a strong focal point when viewed from the kitchen.
The mirrors are positioned to create a false perspective, or trompe l’oeil, giving a sense of space beyond the boundaries of this small courtyard. Careful positioning of the mirrors reflect the garden, rather than the viewer, thereby increasing the impact of this feature.
