Modern Courtyard, St Albans
Front gardens can sometimes get overlooked but with love and attention they will give pleasure every time you open your front door – as well as adding kerb appeal.
This courtyard provides a sunny front garden that is private and secluded. The garden design for this award-winning ultra modern home was inspired by Italian courtyards, with formal geometry around the focal point of a Judas tree. Hardwood decking, Cor-ten steel edging and pebbles combine naturally with the planting of perennials and grasses. The beds are packed with herbs to use in the nearby kitchen. Yew hedging and an Iroko screen enclose the garden, screening the driveway and creating a private space to be enjoyed every day of the year.
