ResidentialMediterranean Courtyard – Little Ribston, Harrogate

May 26, 2022

The Client brief:
Mediterranean-style courtyard with some wow factor!
The layout and journey through this tired backyard played a key part during the design phase. Aiming to make the space feel like an inviting extension to the kitchen which can now comfortably accommodate four people. HGD reduced the size of the gate freeing up space for some much-needed greenery. We used Fired Earth ‘Urban Ayrz’ patterned tiles on the custom-made water feature and on the riser of the step to bring the all-important detail and create a ’Mediterranean’ feel. The natural wood Cedar cladding opens up the space and accentuates the seating zone. The tall mirror reflects the beautiful cedar and the gorgeous little bistro set. Adding a Prunus Serrula Tree into the custom-made planting bed brings height, greenery, and shadows which create energy and bring a sense of scale to the garden. The water feature just adds the final relaxing touch to this ‘Mediterranean Haven’
