House Courtyard Landscaping
Your courtyard is much more than a garden. It is a personal space that should be an expression of your taste and style-an outdoor sanctuary that captivates and awakens the senses. Whether your lifestyle is casual or formal, you can incorporate into your courtyard aspects that reflect your unique personality with some good courtyard landscaping. There are several good house courtyard landscaping available. One example is courtyard landscaping with plants. Plants add life and energy to a courtyard, bringing the smells, textures and diversity of nature to your enclosed outdoor space. Growing plants in a courtyard tends to be a challenge due to the limited amounts of sun received. Choose from a variety of shade-loving climbing plants to grow up a trellis. Akebia is one example of a vine that is hardy in zones 4 through 6. It retains its leaves almost all year and develops clusters of purple fruit pods from in spring and summer. Plant in raised flower beds or in large containers to give the roots room to expand.
