Before & After: Alicia’s Courtyard Garden

Spring has spring and its time to do something about those unsightly views.  Alicia made over her small garden courtyard in Adelaide, Australia with some easy changes.  The biggest impact, by far, is the removal of the ugly laundry line and the addition of a bamboo fence that covers up the unsightly existing fence.   Courtyards and small gardens call for simple plans.  Here she added only lush non-flowering greens and made a local antique store find (backed with a mirror) the shining focal point.

I really like the concrete slab dining table (I am considering making one for myself) paired with the curvy  Panton “S” chair replicas.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
