Modern Courtyard 2009
Landscape Ontario Award of Excellence
Surfaces of steel, wood, and stone are used judiciously in this small, contemporary courtyard. A garage sheathed in stainless steel panels and a square terrace of ‘Indian’ stone, along with a mid-century modern inspired horizontal clear cedar-strip fence and bench, defines the setting so that it feels spacious and intimate. The leafy canopy of four Flame Maples refreshes the air, provides needed shade and adds a touch of woodland to this streamlined setting.
