ENGLISH COURTYARD GARDEN
Homewood, Houston (Galleria)
This English courtyard garden in the Homewood Community of Houston both compliments the architecture of the home and is a beautiful example of how capitalizing on space can transform a landscape. Through creative design and attention to scale, this compact property is able to have an area for outdoor dining, a lawn for grandchildren to play and multiple evergreen fringe trees and seasonal color beds for added visual impact. Scalloped flagstone edges and borders of dwarf mondo grass reinforce the traditional English style of this garden.
