Courtyard Landscapes

Countless of our London garden design projects focus on the creation of innovative courtyard gardens, where private landscapes throughout a multitude of scales portray diverse, refined and secluded outdoor sanctuaries. Predominantly personal and passionately detailed, these walled gardens mitigate an overly streamlined urban reality, where the intimate, offbeat, exotic and architectural aspects of our clients' homes and aspirations find their niche in unique courtyard designs.


Our distinctive approach, in-house landscaping team and sculptural planting style, delineated through meticulous proportion, balanced colour palettes and bold textures, evoke and aptly sustain courtyard essentiality through astute juxtaposition of sculpture, water, foliage, hardscaping and lighting elements – the very rudiments of classic courtyard gardens, reimagined in contemporary London settings.

Design & Words: Amir Schlezinger
