This garden makes the most of a small, shady courtyard space tucked behind a delightful character property in Reigate. It is viewed on two sides from the house so planting with year-round interest and lighting for evenings and short Winter days mean that the space can be enjoyed every day of the year.

Landscaping: White walls and mirrors expand the sense of space and draw light in. The sound of water from the fountain soothes and lighting from wall mounted and strung lights extend the time that the garden can be enjoyed. The original brick flooring has been professionally cleaned and repointed to create a smooth and beautiful walking surface. 

Planting: Shade loving planting lives happily in generous pots. Bamboo reaches up to the sky and variegated leaves bring light into the space.
