This tiny courtyard invites you to take in those summer days under the shade of the feature Cercis tree or potter around and pick your fresh herbs and produce for the BBQ.

“I hired Outhouse Design to create a front and back yard design for my small inner city semi. From the first meeting, Steve listened to how I used the space and my home and how I lived. The design he then developed was amazing and beyond anything that I had envisioned when I started this process! 
The builders (Outside Space) then put these plans into action. One year on and I continue to love spending time in my new backyard- the design has worked so well it looks as good now (if not better) as when it was finished.”
