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.
If space permits, plant trees in containers to give your courtyard garden a vertical element. Trees need large pots unless you plan to prune roots on a regular basis. If your courtyard is small, you might need to rely on vines trained on tall trellises and walls to add vertical movement to your garden.
If you have a deck made of plastic or composite materials, the deck can still benefit from a thorough cleaning at least once a year. Composite decks can still harbor mold and mildew because the material is made of wood fibers and plastic. A gentle power washing will help clean it up, but resist using a strong setting on the machine, as you'll likely cause the wood fibers to pill.
To replace rotted or broken boards, remove the screws and use the damaged board as a template to cut a new board of the same material. Once you remove the rotted board, check the joists underneath to be sure they are free of rot.
