Courtyard and front garden design , Niemodlin, Silesia, Poland.

courtyard niemodlinThe restoration of a 19th century (Silesian) farmhouse, barns, and outbuildings into a holiday/ retirement home resulted in the accumulation of salvaged and reclaimed building materials. The clients wanted to use as many salvaged items as possible in the landscape setting which I fully supported.

Intentionally low maintenance, the predominantly hardscape/ paving design incorporates an outdoor kitchen, log store, room for vehicles to turn, adequate drainage from the snow melt, and plants that look after themselves despite the -30 to +40 degree temperature range.

Work is currently underway and completion anticipated for 2017.
