Patio & Courtyard Gardens

We often find that the most stunning transformations of space are made when we are creating small courtyard and patio garden designs. 

We have extensive experience in the use of both modern and traditional materials and our carefully planned planting ensures that your Patio or Courtyard makes the bests use of the features and space in your new garden.  

It's always good to be inspired, so here are some examples of our work that may give you some ideas:   

Paved front entrance to this house in Hampstead

Making a Grand Entrance

This is the front garden to a large detached house in Hampstead with an 'L' shaped garden that wraps around the house.

Hot Tub Heaven

This is the sloping garden to a new build property in a quiet, gated estate in Frimley, Surrey.

Reinvented Courtyard in Richmond

This courtyard in Richmond needed an uplift to make it into a usable social space. Take a look at the full transformation.

Contemporary & Beyond

Our clients knew that their garden was an extremely valuable asset, but the way that it was arranged did not realise its full potential.

This is the rectangular rear garden to an end of terrace, corner property in Camden.

Patio garden at the rear of this property with raised beds built from sleepers

Urban Oasis

These are the front and rear gardens to a double-fronted, period property in Sydenham. Its owners had spent a lot of time renovating the property and wanted to bring the gardens up to the same standard.

A Garden for all Senses

Knightsbridge Nook

This garden is in fact a tiny enclosed courtyard, surrounded by tall buildings, in central London.

Mediterranean Courtyard

Our clients had fond memories of holidays in the Mediterranean and wanted to recreate that warm feeling in their own garden.

Small Courtyard for Lady of Leisure

Our client wanted an interesting, easy to look after patio garden with a traditional feel, but did not want a symmetrical design typical of many such schemes. She wanted something a bit ‘different’.

Small Georgian Town House

Our clients wanted an elegant dining area making the best use of the space and in a style in keeping with the property and its interiors.

Tiny Courtyard

Our brief was for a practical space our clients could use to relax and entertain in, but the plot was divided awkwardly by a step making use of a table and chairs impossible.

Tiny Courtyard Transformed

This was a postage-stamp back garden typical of London Victorian properties, but the tiny courtyard had been laid wholly to deck with no planting to speak of.

Chic with Kids

This was the invaluable outside space that came with our clients’ garden flat in a prestigious area of London but it was impractical for the young family.

Our clients requested a practical, but beautiful design with real ‘wow’ factor.

Communal Living

Our clients have adjoining patio gardens opening out onto a communal space serving a number of apartments. Unfortunately the developers had laid only a small amount of uninteresting paving.

Contemporary Waterside

This was a very interesting project in that the garden was on an island in the middle of the Thames only accessible by footbridge.

Courtyard Transformed

The owner of this small courtyard garden is a musician who spends much of his time travelling, he therefore needed a low maintenance scheme, but with the ‘wow’ factor to welcome him home.

We needed to incorporate his bespoke smoker/barbecue and a large table with benches for his frequent entertaining. 

image of a modern patio garden

Forest Hill to Beverley Hills

This was a suburban garden on a steeply sloping site, rising up at the back of the house via some very steep steps, rendering much of the garden unusable.

Garden Room

Our clients wanted an interesting and inviting space with a contemporary feel, to act as an extension to their dining and living areas – somewhere they could entertain and relax.

Paved Courtyard

Our first concern with this garden was to give our clients the security and privacy they needed but as this was a listed building, we had first to approach the local council for permissions.

image of a decked garden

Small Modern

This was a new build property and the garden was typically very small, laid to lawn with a few paving slabs outside the back door.

Urban Space for Entertaining

Our clients wanted to transform this urban wasteland into a low maintenance outside space where they could entertain, party and relax. They wanted some greenery, including a small lawn and plenty of colour.

The Akeman Pub

Winner of best designed pub in England gets a garden to match! This was the outside space to the recently refurbished restaurant at the Akeman Pub in Tring.

The Tardis

Our clients had fond memories of holidays in the south of France and wanted to re-create something of a rustic French feel in their tiny London garden, using materials to suit the age of their property.

Garden Gym

This was a small suburban garden who's owners wanted to also turn a small garage into a gym that overlooked the garden.
