In this video you will see the courtyard garden (design shown in how to design a courtyard garden video) being built.
This is the first stage of the courtyard garden construction.
The paving slabs will be laid in a couple of months time, so you will have to use your imagination a little bit (or watch the next video in the series, see below for details). The rendered wall planters are built, so you will still get a good idea of the garden design layout.

The earth moves!
Building a courtyard garden in this part of Spain is tricky because the area is subject to a lot of ground movement, the concrete is reinforced with metal to help prevent cracking. A plastic mesh is also worked into the wall rendering for the same reason.
The paving slabs will bring the ground level up approx 10cm (4″) higher, which will make the wall planters a look lower. The garden should be completed at Easter time. I will do a follow up video when the garden is finished. The paving, water feature and plants will make an enormous difference to the finished garden, I can’t wait to see it done!
You don’t have to wait to see how the courtyard garden turned out, you can see it on the courtyard garden design update page. The update video will show you how the garden looked after six and eighteen months.
Time to plan your own garden?
As now is a really good time to be planning the garden, the next 3 blog posts will be galleries of completed gardens. These will hopefully give you plenty of good ideas to put into your own garden design.
