Rebecca Smith - Garden design & consultancy

The Old Bakery

My clients were looking to create a romantic and aromatic touch of Provence in a south-facing inner courtyard of their house, which was a mix of hard paving and grass.

All existing hardscaping was removed and the ground levels reduced before the complete renovation of this space, which is overlooked from all main reception rooms of the house, began. Two new terraces in sandstone allow for morning and evening dining, low hedges of lavendar and buxus divide the space and essential height created by upright supports for climbing roses and clematis on swags of rope. 

The planting is in soft colours and will tie the rooms to the garden outside and is designed to provide year-round interest. Topiary and pleached trees will screen the area from neighbours and provide a skeleton framework for perennials and bulbs throughout the year.
