Courtyard Garden Styles
Courtyard garden styles are defined by a flat surface surrounded by walls or buildings. It’s imperative to ensure that your courtyard feels charming and cosy. Making a feature of the brick walls by either creating a distressed appearance or painting them will add instant character or a pop of colour. Go vertical with your planting to add interest and introduce texture or colour through pots. Because enclosed spaces often lack natural sunlight, lawn growth may be difficult, so a paved or decked terrace is often a wise option. Outside mirrors and lighting are other ways to help banish dark corners. The in-house design team at Acacia Gardens has created a list of ten courtyard garden features you’ll want to include.
