Landscaping A Small Courtyard

If you want to landscaping your small courtyard then, you will need some ideas. Here are several landscaping ideas for your small courtyard. First idea, make a cottage garden in your small courtyard. A small courtyard cottage garden with a few large pots by the door, filled with easily grown kitchen favorites, provide fresh herbs and vegetables for the kitchen. Add a simple brick patio in a running-bond pattern and paths around the perimeter of the courtyard to provide easy access to semidwarf, dwarf or espalier fruit trees. A picnic table gives the family a place to enjoy meals outdoors, while classic Adirondack chairs are comfortable for resting and reading. Or you can go with Southwestern theme for your small courtyard. A chiminea in the corner of a flagstone patio sets the scene for a southwestern theme. For the plants use desert plants. And add mission-style patio furniture and Southwestern patterned cushions and blankets to soften the scene.

Another idea to landscaping your small courtyard is go for Zen landscape. A raked bed of gravel represents water, with dwarf conifers in the background and on rocky islands to portray a peaceful Zen landscape. Use “Green Prince” cedar and Japanese maples provide a variety of sizes and textures to layer the backdrop, providing the illusion of distance. Add color in spring with the profuse blossoms of a flowering cherry. A simple bench placed where you can view the landscape, flanked by lanterns to light your path, completes the Zen small courtyard.
