Stylish Contemporary Courtyards
Tiny courtyard gardens can be incredibly stylish & with careful design, very useful spaces too!
In small spaces less is definitely more - yet this clever design adds height through the stepped seating & raised beds, unity through repetition of shapes & fabulous interest through the use of plants with different shapes, forms & textures. Again... integrated seating saves space.
I totally adore the interplay between materials, shapes and light in this space. It just needs a more lush & dramatic plant as a focal point, then it would be perfect!

Simple, clean & stylish - but this would be so much better if the fence had horizontal slats rather than vertical ones
Integrated seating saves space & does away with the necessity for furniture which could clutter the space. This tiny garden even has a water feature. And restricted planting space doesn't mean there can't be plenty of plants!

Great use of contrasting materials, planting is simple but with contrasting forms
Contrasting materials add interest, horizontal lines make the space appear bigger
