What building materials are best to use in a courtyard design?

When designing your courtyard space, it is important to note the slope of your Augusta, GA landscape and if there are any drainage issues so you don’t have a puddle in the middle of your courtyard after every rainstorm. If drainage is an issue that cannot just be resolved by regarding the space, pea gravel or large paver stones with moss can be aesthetically pleasing while facilitating proper drainage by allowing any excess water to seep back into the ground and feed your plants. For less saturated landscapes, materials like brick, stone, or slate are beautiful hardscape options for your courtyard, no matter the size.

Can a courtyard work in a smaller space?

Absolutely! One of the best ways to revitalize a small outdoor space is to define it with a courtyard. If your Augusta, GA space has high privacy walls, incorporating vertical gardens or vertical water features can help bring color and texture to the wall’s utilitarian function. If you have an outdoor space that is longer than it is wide, planting containers full of perennials is a great way to help separate your seating area from a more open entertaining area while still allowing the space to feel open. A professional landscape designer can work with you and your space to create a courtyard space that feels inviting.
