Top Seven Courtyard Design Tips

  • Stone Garden
  • Flooded Garden

The term 'courtyard garden' conjures up visions of stately containers and cool, shady corners. Perhaps your outdoor area is not there yet? Well, here’s a guaranteed way to convert your outdoor area into a special place you will love and wish to pass time in.

1. The primary rule with undersized spaces is – do not add an excessive amount. Filling up an area with pots and containers can create what looks like a storage space. Therefore, ensure what you place has a use or visual appeal beneficial for the whole area.

2. Do not let the boundaries overwhelm the landscape. If the fences or walls are all unlike, the space will not feel like a complete area. Therefore try getting all the walls or fences, if not identical, at least working together or tied together with a theme.

3. Solely place screening wherever it's fully necessary. Courtyards may be viewable by neighbours' windows and it's tempting to place trellis or plants to obstruct them. However you will also be shutting out light, therefore use screening wisely.

4. Always invest in comfy seating. Unless you actually like sitting on benches, aim for seating a tad easier on the rear. Outdoor sofas or rattan easy chairs look good and feel good.

5. Track the sun to make sure your it reaches your sitting area, or opt for shade, if you'd rather stay cool.

6. Hide the meeting place between the walls and floor as much as possible. It's one of the reasons courtyard gardens often look unwelcoming, seeing this join of the wall or fence and paving looks clinical and yard-like, so put something like containers around the edges to soften the area.
