A water feature belongs in every courtyard garden—just be sure to choose one scale to the space. A fountain that’s too large and noisy can easily overpower conversation in a small space, while a small wall fountain doesn’t take up square footage and has a gentle trickling sound.
Stir a little outdoor magic by designing a courtyard garden. These secluded spaces create a cozy ambience perfect for Sunday brunch, curling up with a book or catching a few z’s on a comfy lounge chair. A courtyard garden embodies a sense of separation from the world otuside. The result is a secret garden that often becomes everyone’s favorite spot.
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.
Annuals, perennials and shrubs can all perform well in pots. Do your homework and prepare the right soil mixture to help plants thrive. It’s also vital to supply adequate moisture. If watering is difficult, your containerized courtyard garden won’t complement the scene.
