South End Courtyard

Historic Boston rises above a contemporary private courtyard in the city’s South End. Steel-framed, whitewashed fir walls enclose a vibrant, durable garden. Innovative storage solutions make efficient use of limited space. Soothing geometric patterns visually extend the volume of the courtyard, and bright plantings punctuate the landscape. Native moss joints create a soft, porous carpet between antique cobblestones. A salvaged Maine granite pier rises from the earth to form the pedestal of a table—the centerpiece of the garden. Interior and exterior spaces blend to expand urban living.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

While not all plants are evergreen, Cunningham says, the clients enjoy the garden year-round. The Hakone grass continues to thrive over winter, blowing in the frosty wind while cascading over terraced planters.

Like the minimalist material palette, the primary planting palette is limited to two shade-loving perennials. Hakone grass (Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola') and Heuchera (Heuchera micrantha 'Palace Purple') are mixed within the terraced raised beds. "They thrive in the space and have excellent multi-seasonality. We use annuals in the containers in the garden — and use palms in the containers that flank the entrance of the house.” contemporary landscape by Matthew Cunningham Landscape Design LLC Matthew Cunningham Landscape Design LLC While not all plants are evergreen, Cunningham says, the clients enjoy the garden year-round.
