Create a private sanctuary in your yard with inspiration from these beautiful courtyards.
Joseph De Sciose
Bricks, pavers, shrubs, perennials, and flowering annuals give this courtyard texture and color. A 12-foot-wide circular terrace is made of salvaged brick and 6-inch-square concrete pavers. A border around the terrace is planted with 'Indigo Moon' torenias, 'Saturn' coleus, and 'Black Magic' elephant's ears. The elephant's ears and coleus both provide showy foliage from late spring till fall, while torenias continuously produce a spreading carpet of small blue flowers.
