Since ancient times, courtyards have served as intimate spaces tucked away from public view. Today, courtyards can extend your living space and provide you with a peaceful place to relax or entertain.
The plants and materials that are used in a courtyard define its style. Bold and simple design that complements the style of your house is best.
You can create visual interest by growing a vine up a trellis, or by grouping potted plants around the space. Consider installing a fountain so that you can enjoy the tranquil sound of bubbling water.
Finally, don’t forget that you’ll need a place to sit down and relax in your beautiful outdoor room!
