Contemporary Patio with Boxwoods, Pavers, Brick and Plexiglass Screen
Boxwoods, such as the 'Green Mountain' boxwood on the left side of this contemporary patio, are wise, cost-concious purchases for courtyard shrubs because they have handsome foliage and grow to 3 feet high by 3 feet wide. Also, layering is a part of outdoor design. A plexiglass panel is front of a cedar fence in this patio by A Blade of Grass, which won an Association of Professional Landscape Designers award. A plexiglass screen also can be a DIY project.
