Create the illusion of levelsThis garden could seem oppressive thanks to the high fencing and the close proximity of the surrounding buildings, but an ingenious design turns this negative into a positive by using the full height of the wall to create the illusion of a stepped garden. Raised planters provide an elevated bed for a neat row of box hedging, and olive trees planted closely together reach up to cover the very top of the fence. Three raised planters behind the sofa provide another layer of greenery. By elevating everything in this way the floor space is left clear to allow for furniture, and it also makes it easier for the homeowners to move around the space, especially when entertaining guests.

The olive trees would break up the tall fence-just keep them pruned.

This may be a more cost efficient fencing option, which will also give the courtyard vibe and incorporate the planters
