Arranging and keeping the garden in order can be a very nice challenge if you know how to use the courtyard accordingly to a garden design plan.
The objective may be simple but also it can also turn into an opportunity to make the best out of the outside space you own.
Even a very small garden can be turned into a magical place fitting both necessity and esthetics.
If you have kids the garden can become a playground in disguise, a place where you can relax looking over your little “rascals” and near the elegant look of a secluded place with rattan furniture and fruit trees shade the presence of a sand box and a “merry go round” may give the impression of a little outdoor paradise where both the guests and their children could enjoy while visiting.
Avoiding the mess in a decorative garden is a good idea. The space needs delimitation and for that you can use, decorative stones, garden plants or fountains.
The relaxation area can be separated from the playground by a flower bed or by a brick path. This will give the impression of space and the sensation of a larger garden.
Most of all, in order to stop worrying about mowing the grass you can plant it in small portions among other plants, flowers and trees. The best method is to know where the details will be placed designing the garden, first on paper and only after that in nature.
Knowing what view we intend to obtain will help getting a clearer vision over the entire ensemble.
