Outside this gorgeous Italian-style mansion is a cobblestone pathway and driveway leading to several structures. Multiple gardens border the home, including one comprised of white flowers and vines climbing up a beautiful arbor.
The contained nature of a small urban courtyard gives you a huge opportunity to bring in a cool feature. Cultivators Design and Landscape purchased the orange container and retro-fitted a fountain around it for a custom industrial fountain. A fountain also can be cheaper than a waterfall. You can re-create the look as a DIY project using a garden pot you already own or hunting at yard sales.
Colorful Court Yard Entry With Red Window Frames, Yellow Home Exterior and Rich Green Walkway Garden
A wooden boarder extends past the red window perimeters for an Asian-inspired feel to this courtyard area. The red outlines give a pop of color against the softer, neutral yellow of the walls. Bright green leaves from the gardens lining the concrete walkway bring the area to life leading to the home.
This lush courtyard has all the feel of a grand secret garden with a travertine patio and colorful landscaping. The plants include Japanese blueberry, Podocarpus and East Palatka Holly along the fence line.
Colorful Eclectic Courtyard With Copper Water Feature
A water feature is the focal point at the center of this fun and eclectic backyard hangout. A wood structure lined with metal screening encloses spaces to dine, relax and otherwise entertain. Vessels scattered throughout the courtyard hold plantings of various sizes and shapes, bringing life to the space.
Transitional Courtyard with Cocktail Pool, Outdoor Kitchen
A petite swimming pool features a fireplace at one end with limestone fireballs, as well as a pair of comfortable chaise longues for relaxation. The transitional courtyard with Gothic details also offers an outdoor kitchen complete with grill, sink and ample storage. Multiple seating areas allow the homeowners and their guests to relax in style.
Though the koi pond and reflection area are located at the center of the lowest level of this modern Dallas home, the creative layout of the second level allows natural light in, adding to the serenity and drama of the space.
A pair of dark wooden doors open up to the arched entry to the courtyard. Pendant lighting and floor lights keep the outdoor space well-lit during the evening. To the left, a small, rectangular water feature adds tranquility to the design.
