Charming Cottage Courtyard

What Houzzers are commenting on:
A pair of Adirondack chairs with plump cushions provide a lovely spot to pause with a cup of morning coffee and admire the view of the cottage-style garden by Garden Nest Residential Landscape. The beds include a mix of Japanese maples (Acer palmatum), ferns, coral bells (Heuchera sp.) and lavender (Lavandula sp.) in a blue-purple color palette. A single recirculating fountain set among the foliage acts as a focal point and brings a peaceful sound to the garden. Design idea: Add calming sounds. Whether it’s the trickle of water from a fountain or the soft gong of a wind chime, introduced sounds can help set a serene scene.
