Modern Tropical Courtyard

In this space space garden large zinc planters contain colourful tropical cannas, euphorbia, crocosmia, and succulents. The planters lead your eye to the dolphin/fish fountain. Hand blown glass adds sparkle and colour throughout the year when the flowers finish their bloom. Mounds of bright lime green ground cover soften the paved and pea stone patio area and also lead the eye to the focal point. To the left is an area with a dining table and a small barbecue.
