Lighting is also important when you want to create an inviting courtyard that takes on a magical feel after dark. Twinkling light strings in trees, along walls or on trellises make every evening a festive occasion. Candles enhance intimacy, and paper lanterns invite a party. Choose lights that support your courtyard garden’s theme. Illuminate key features, like a fountain, and always light walkways for safety.
While you may be staining just the newly replaced deck board, Decks.com advises that you stain your entire deck once a year starting soon after it's installed. Some pressure-treated wood requires a 30- to 90-day drying-out period. Ask your installer how long you should wait before staining your pressure-treated wood deck.
Make a small courtyard seem larger by including mirrors. A wall mirror can effectively double the perceived depth of a narrow courtyard garden. Or consider using a series of mirrors along a wall to mimic windows.
After the deck is stained, you should apply a topical sealer, which will help keep out moisture. Some stains have a built-in sealer, allowing you to skip this step, but ask at the store which one is right for your deck. You apply the topical coat the same way you would apply a deck stain using a synthetic brush or roller.
