Small House Plans with Courtyards – Landscaping a small house and garden can be a joy and a challenge. Plans can be completed with less money than is required for landscape projects of traditional size because the smaller space requires a minimum of gardening materials. Achieving balance with creative ideas that support a common focal point. Draw a horizontal plane for your patio to explore different ideas before you start
Build a rock garden for a focal point in a small area. Choose shapes and sizes of interesting rocks and complement them with plants that will not invade the garden. Rock gardens do not require much maintenance, which is an added benefit. Use a fountain, waterfall or small pond in the small house landscaping. Fountains and waterfalls do not require much space, add interest to the landscape and provide the soothing sound of falling water. They can be alone to attract attention or be mixed in a rock garden or flower bed.
Grow flowers and ornamental plants in pots instead of planting them in the soil. They can be easily moved as needed, which is especially useful when some plants have lost their flowers, while others are still blooming. Plant flowers and other decorative plants on raised beds to make the most of the space you have. Organize your plantings so that those that bloom early are at the front, while late-season plants are at the back.
