The owners of this 30m2 courtyard called on Richard Unsworth to create a verdant entertaining space to offset the concrete walls and double-height ceiling. “We’ve played with the scale and put a screen up the wall, next to a giant fiddleleaf fig,” says Richard. Along the front wall he installed tall but narrow troughs and hanging pots filled with trailing succulents, Epiphyllums and mistletoe cactus. Garden Life; www. gardenlife.com.au.
