Back garden courtyards
Courtyards of any nature bring nature inside. These areas are seen every day and they are an intimate living space . Courtyard design is very varied and relates to what the courtyard is going to be used for and what areas of the home it impacts . Courtyards can be just plane paved areas with some simple pots or they can be a combination of both paving and or pavers and planting . Water features are a very welcome element to courtyards .
The garden maintenance of a courtyard is extremely important as the last thing you want in your home is a dishevelled poor looking garden right where you are every day .
Keeping the design of your courtyard up to date is something to consider and a few courtyard garden upgrades will be needed every so often . For example replace an old fashioned looking water feature to a more updated type water feature . Remove some of the old coastal type plants and replace them with lovely and hardy indigenous plants .
A courtyard redesign is a great project to tackle before the Easter or July holidays. Get your courtyard looking gorgeous before all your upcountry family arrive !
