When John Davies, award winning garden designer first saw this tiny courtyard in Fulham measuring just 20 metres squared, it was dark, extremely over looked with a view of only the neighbouring property; he knew he had his work cut out for him. Through the careful and clever selection of key plants and attractive materials John Davies has created an enticing and sleek small urban garden in a modern contemporary style in perfect keeping with the interior, that retains year-round interest. Phyllostachys bissetti has been umbrella pruned to provide both an evergreen screen and compliment the horizontal mahogany slat work. The polished steel water wall provides a stunning focal point and provides a meditative sound to distract from the urban surroundings. Pittosporum tobira nanum, planted in bright stony dolomite white eye catching Urbis planters complete the modern sophisticated look. By painting the rendered walls in Farrow and Ball’s ‘Moles breath’ which complements the Flamed basalt tiles, John has succeeded in continuing the colour scheme from the interior so that the interior effortlessly flows from the inside out. Whether viewed from the outside in or inside out, John Davies has transformed this overlooked dingy courtyard into a stylish contemporary garden room.
