The Brief
The client had erected temporary post and wire fencing to enclose their two dogs that would ideally prefer to be out discovering the several acres of ground. This part of the garden also had to have vehicular access since oil deliveries to the pool area were a regular occurrence.

The New Design
Since the client had deer and rabbit issues, it was suggested that a low wall around a courtyard area would not only keep dogs in but wildlife out, enabling a wider selection of planting within the walled garden area. Some planting in gravel meant that the necessary vehicular access through a second gate was seamless to the overall design. The clients were so delighted with this courtyard garden, that the dogs were banned! See More Larger Gardens
