How beautiful can the courtyard of a private house be if you consistently and deliberately make efforts to improve it? Let's look at an example of a photo of this courtyard, how its landscape design was created and the site was landscaped.
A parade flower bed with unpretentious perennials tolerates both heat and the lack of regular watering.
The courtyard of a private house: photo of a flower bed
This beautiful flower bed in the courtyard of a private house did not appear immediately, at first, while the house was being completed and all the time and energy was spent on its arrangement, there was just a lawn in front of the house.
In order to prevent the chaotic variegation of the landscape design of the courtyard, a simple and practical decision was made - to form flower beds according to the color of the plants.
And the first was a flower bed in violet-blue tones, and its main accent was the luxurious Katevba rhododendron.
It is one of the most frost-resistant rhododendron species that tolerates both sun and partial shade well.
The flower bed next to the terrace in the garden was formed in silvery colors - chastets, cineraria, wormwood, silvery willow. The fashion for such flower beds in landscape design is not accidental - these silvery lace will look exquisite and stylish in any yard.
And this was the period of addiction to the color pink.
There is nothing more pleasant than making exceptions to the rules for yourself - this flowerbed turned out to be quite variegated due to the blossoming Japanese quince.
But the flowering quince is truly a splendid sight in the garden.
In the farthest and most shady corner of the courtyard, a white flower garden was laid out. Such a flower garden just looks magical in the evenings, it kind of glows in the dark - the so-called "moon garden" effect. The landscaping of the yard uses these flower beds to both brighten the dark corners of the garden and visually expand the size of the site.
This was an attempt to make a garden in Japanese strength: driftwood, gravel, conifers. Alas, the attempt was deemed unsuccessful.
This is another experiment in the courtyard of a private house - a small pond with a flower garden. The flower garden received general approval, the pond was small and unsightly - and it was abandoned.
Another flowerbed with a delphinium in the yard.
And the unpretentious cuff fills any place in the yard with pleasure.
As practice has shown, the most beautiful flower beds in the courtyard of a private house are those with plants a meter or more in height. They can be seen from afar and form the main backdrop in the garden. It is important to choose plants that retain their decorative effect throughout the season - ideally if they bloom all summer, but perfectly acceptable if the foliage remains neat and beautiful after flowering. Flowering shrubs (rhododendron, hydrangea, jasmine, lilac, quince, elderberry) are best suited for the base of flower beds - they create a large volume of flowers and are unpretentious. In order for their flowering to be luxurious, you need to cut them off and feed them on time.

The best place to enjoy the garden view is on the veranda.
Here you can enjoy not only the beautiful view of the courtyard, but also a good conversation in close company at the table.
Delicious country delicacies are also part of the delights of country life.
A cozy home tempts with its salutary coolness in the summer heat.
The tranquil, rustic interior creates more of a welcoming light mood than trendy contemporary design finds.
"Business is time, fun is an hour" - this old rule makes it possible to work well and relax with pleasure.
The courtyard of this private house is being improved gradually - last year a beautiful flower bed was laid out near the garage.
And one more flower bed in the same style at the back of the yard.
Flowers have found their place even on the path.
One of these paths in the courtyard leads to a small bathhouse.
From which in the evenings a stunning view of the river opens.
Your private house yard can be made in different styles - it can be bright and energetic or gentle and thoughtful. All this is created by the colors of the flower beds - from exquisite white, blue and silver, to bright yellow, red and crimson. On the other hand, there is no need to make radical turns in landscape design - I liked everything - tomorrow I will remove all the old plants and buy fashionable flowers. Harvesting plants is always easier than planting and growing. Therefore, take care of the existing plants and build your yard design taking into account what you already have..
The courtyard of a private house: a photo of a greenhouse and a summer kitchen
For growing seedlings, a small greenhouse was attached to the south side of the barn. In winter, it is used as additional storage space.
The outdoor kitchen in the courtyard began with the construction of a simple wooden table next to the barbecue.
Then a hundred with benches was added to it.
During the construction of the gazebo, the summer kitchen was moved to this part of the garden.
A year ago, it was decided to replace the open gazebo with a closed one - so it will be more functional.
The gazebo was poured into the finished one, so the construction of the frame did not take much time.
The courtyard of a private house is a photo of a finished covered gazebo. A summer kitchen with barbecue is located to the right of the gazebo, this year it is planned to make its own canopy for it.
The design of the courtyard of a private house takes into account that each plant in the garden has its own advantages and disadvantages (however, like ours, you).
Some bloom profusely, but not for long, others like sun and sand, and still others are attractive to pests. A skilled owner will find his place for each plant - and everyone will feel at home here.
