The brief from our client was to introduce the sound of running water, create a seating area and to dress a brick wall in a small courtyard garden in Kensington. We were asked to introduce the sound of running water, create a seating area and to dress the end brick wall in an oriental style.
This garden illustrates what can be achieved in the smallest of spaces and features one of the most traditional of all Japanese gardens; a Tetsu bachi and Oribe lantern with evergreen Nandina domestica, some granite stepping stones and silver grey gravel. We dressed the brick wall using split bamboo canes in an attractive pattern to form an oriental backdrop to the garden. The granite bench is not shown in these images.
