Beautiful courtyard for a beautiful home, it’s a dream for the king of land. But the problem is my land is only in 5 cents. In this I have occupied a 1500 sq feet home too, then landscaping? Completely ridiculous!!! Then where to do this landscaping? Do you know my dear friend; landscaping for your small courtyard is a new trend.
You can create your landscape in various shapes. There is no necessity for leveling your courtyard. Let the land structure be free in its own shape. So your landscape will spread on cutting and on small prominence. Make small pathways, ponds even artificial knolls in your courtyard, absolutely it will look great. Just plan and design before you begin. Sketch your courtyard in a sheet paper and make corrections and improvements in your sheet. It will be helpful for you to make good courtyard land design plan.
The weather conditions, seasonal changes and especially your life style are important factors for the long lasting landscape.
