Every courtyard garden has a sense of enclosure. Four walls may actually be present, or they may be implied by a hedge or section of lattice blanketed with vines. Some courtyard walls have windows cut into them to frame neighboring views—and to give the space a feeling of openness. This is especially important in very small courtyards.
Include furniture in your courtyard garden to provide a comfy place to enjoy the atmosphere. Because a courtyard lacks a ceiling, it often seems larger than it is, which can easily lead you to choose furnishings that overpower the space. Some courtyards are large enough to hold a dining table and chairs; others can fit only a bistro set. The smallest courtyards may work best with just a bench.
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.
A patio is often built adjacent to an in-ground pool to offer a place for entertaining and relaxing. They can be made of poured concrete, precast concrete pavers or natural stone such as Pennsylvania bluestone or limestone. The materials that you use for a patio should coordinate with the other hardscape materials you use around your house so that there is a cohesive style or look.
