A beautiful courtyard of a private house often arises not from an excess of imagination or money, but from the need to solve specific problems and embody the owners' vision of which courtyard will be convenient and pleasant for them.
So, behind a fabulous flower curtain, an unsightly wall of a neighbor's barn is often hidden.
And the lush bloom of rose bushes around the fence is designed to maximize the visual expansion of the tiny garden's space.
In a small yard, even a vegetable garden should bear its own aesthetic load.
How to plan a beautiful courtyard for a private house
This small, beautiful courtyard of a private house began with this gravel-paved plot in front of the house. Which was intended only for parking two cars and small flower beds on the side. It is difficult to imagine a beautiful garden here in any form.
The total area of this plot in front of the house is 2.5 acres. Because At first there were attempts to combine the garden with a parking lot, but they were unsuccessful, it was decided to divide the garden as such with a parking lot. This is how the new layout of the site looks like.
Next to the house, on one side, there is a paved area that fences off the parking lot with a fence with a gate, on the other side, a small vegetable garden is planned with a garden behind it. In the garden, on the left side, in order to raise the fence as high as possible, an artificially raised small terrace is planned.
Private house courtyard design. Parking lot
This is how the equipped new parking lot in the courtyard of this private house looks from the street side. In front is the entrance to the house, on the right is the entrance to the garden, on the left is the neighbors.
In order to make a reliable covering on the site for cars, which would not come into dissonance with the general landscape design of the garden, an original decision was made - to build a decorative fence between the parking lot and the garden. A fence made of cinder blocks, concrete plaster on top. In order that it does not look too massive, windows with boxes for flowers are made in it. From the side of the street, this fence will continue with a decorative wrought-iron fence. From the side of the yard near the fence, in front of the house entrance, a gate is planned. A gate is also planned in the fence for access to the garden.
View of the parking lot after completion of work. The entrance to the garden was decorated with an arch of woven roses. Also, rose bushes grow throughout the entire fence, they are complemented by perennial ornamental grasses and flowers in containers.
View of the fence from the street side (parking lot on the left). In order to make the flower beds over the fence more decorative, natural stone was used. Flower boxes perfectly complement the overall landscape design of this piece of the yard.
From the side of the street, the fence will be forged (the standards of this area do not allow building a solid fence from the side of the street). For privacy, garden vines and ornamental shrubs will be planted next to the fence on the garden side.
A small rabatka - a flower bed with regularly repeating groups of flowers, is in perfect harmony with the clear rhythmic design of the fence itself.
This is what the fence looks like between neighboring plots.
In that part of the courtyard where there is a desire to communicate with neighbors, a chain-link net was used for the fence, along which climbing roses climb.
A small beautiful garden is the highlight of this yard.
As we remember, the entire site was paved with gravel, so before starting work, gravel was raked and a frame for a small greenhouse was installed at the end of the beds.
Using garden curbs, we formed a shape for four beds, covered the beds with soil.
A large flower pot was installed in the corner of each bed - flowers will grow there, which will add a little color to the green bed.
The paths between the beds were beautifully paved with narrow blocks of paving slabs "like a brick" and covered with gravel
The garden turned out to be no worse than a flower bed!
Small beautiful courtyard of a private house
The design of the courtyard of this private house actively uses a variety of materials for garden paths in order to create new interesting textures and interesting effects.
Those paths that are often used are paved with flat paving slabs, the area near the gazebo is with tiles of a larger size and a different shade, and cozy paths leading to secluded corners of the garden are made of cobblestones and bricks.
A small snow-white arch creates the main accent for the main flower garden with garden sculpture.
By changing flowers for this cute girl, you can create a different mood for this corner of the garden.
This beautiful flower bed with a sculpture is located on a raised terrace along the fence with a neighboring plot. Here the task was to raise the fence as high as possible. Therefore, on the flowerbed, roses that weave high along the arch and the fence, in combination with ornamental shrubs, were used as much as possible. And the garden sculpture harmoniously balanced the size and proportions of this flower bed with the entire garden.
The entire garden is built on a delicate balance of open and closed space, tall flower beds with perennials and containers with annuals.
Every corner of the garden is used for flowers - the area in front of the house, fences, vegetable garden, parking for cars, and, of course, the garden itself.
In order to make the garden paths look more comfortable, some of the flowers grow both on the path itself and "come out" to it from the side.
The owners love and know how to work with flowers.
Therefore, their garden collection is annually replenished with new original finds.
In addition to perennials, which create the basic basis of the garden, annuals are actively used in the design of this garden. It is easier to experiment with them and create a fresh new color and compositional solution.
In order for the beautiful courtyard of a private house to become elegant in spring as early as possible, numerous flower seedlings are grown in a small greenhouse next to the vegetable garden.
Ornamental cabbage became one of the favorites of the last season - unpretentious, graceful. In autumn, when the garden takes a break from the riotous whirlwind of colors, ornamental cabbage, which only becomes more beautiful and brighter after the first frost, looks like a real queen of the garden.
Everything that you do in the garden and in the yard with your own hands will delight you every minute. Use non-standard and unexpected approaches to the design and layout of the courtyard of your private house - after all, only you know what you would like to see from the window and what height of the fence should be for each neighbor. Enjoy the garden and your right to do everything in it to your liking!
