Wednesday, April 16th  /  Garden Before & After: Apartment Courtyard Fortitude Valley

The clients brief was simple for this project. This small internal apartment courtyard was hardly utilised and unispiring with all the grey hard surfaces. Our client wanted to create a small garden that had a calming environment. With a love of tropical plants, she wanted a space to be able to relax and unwind.

This courtyard garden was approximately 2.5m (w) x 5m (l) and took 4 days to complete.

The pathway with rustic stepping stones is set amongst pebbles to give the illusion of space. Lush foliage lines the pathway with a simple plant palette of bromeliads, ferns, small palms and liriopes all helping to achieve the tropical feel. The back wall is painted a dark charcoal colour, again to give the illusion of space, but evenutally as the plants mature the wall will disappear behind. A simple waterfeature is incorporated into the garden design for ambience, with the soft flow of water adding to the calmness of the space.

The new garden also provides a peaceful view from the internal study window.
