Patio & Courtyard Garden Design
We often find that the most stunning transformations of space are made when we are creating small courtyard and patio garden designs.
Our expertise using traditional and modern materials and careful planting schemes means we can work effectively with you to ensure that the final result is something that makes the very best use of the light, space and features of your garden.
It's always good to be inspired so for some great ideas, have at look at our Patio & Courtyard portfolio
This is the rectangular rear garden to an end of terrace, corner property in Camden.
Our clients knew that their garden was an extremely valuable asset, but the way that it was arranged did not realise its full potential.
These are the gardens to a modern terraced house in a quiet cul-de-sac in Carshalton, Surrey.

This is the enclosed garden space to a residential care home in Snodland, between Rochester and Maidstone, in Kent.
This garden is in fact a tiny enclosed courtyard, surrounded by tall buildings, in central London.
Our clients had fond memories of holidays in the Mediterranean and wanted to recreate that warm feeling in their own garden.
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’.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This was a very interesting project in that the garden was on an island in the middle of the Thames only accessible by footbridge.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
