Ascot Spring Show 2018

The Courtyard Garden at the new Ascot Spring Show 2018
Courtyards, traditionally associated with places of refuge and with meeting places, are flexible spaces which can be incorporated into most gardens regardless of whether they are in town or in the countryside. The garden is imagined as an outdoor dining room, highlighting the great benefit of gardens not only for providing seclusion but also as social spaces for meeting, sharing experiences, eating and drinking.

Built by The Outdoor Room

Enclosed on two sides by high yew hedges, Jura Beige limestone forms the wide steps into the courtyard and the main paved area. At one end, a simple copper water bowl is flanked by two small trees, whilst at the other a semi-permeable screen is formed by three Amelanchier lamarkii. Sections of porcelain-clad walls are positioned within the boundary to provide a clean backdrop to the water bowl and to catch the shadows of the multi-stemmed Amelanchiers.
The planting is a simple palette of whites, purples, blues and lime green, and includes euphorbia, erysimum and spring flowering bulbs.
Covid 19 UpdateWe're Still Working!

Despite this being a very difficult and worrying time for us all our design studio is still working. We are still taking enquiries and giving consultations, albeit not face to face.
We can still make visits to your garden to carry out assessments and record site specific information by following government and NHS guidelines. We can enter via a side entrance or similar and stick to social-distancing guidelines or even have a consultation over FaceTime.
Now is a great time to make plans and to get out and enjoy your garden and the health benefits it brings. We need our gardens more than ever at the moment so please do give us a call.
