50 Courtyard Ideas

A courtyard is an unroofed area that is completely or partially enclosed by walls or buildings, typically one forming part of a castle or large house. I've always wanted one. I think it's because I like a more controlled space and the privacy of walls. I'm just more comfortable deep down with that. So I like container gardening, patios, courtyards, porches. I did a Google search to find ideas on couryards. I tried to pick photos that would be useable to a wide range of tastes, sizes and finances. I appreciate all those who shared photos of courtyards so the rest of us could admire and get ideas!

One of my favorites. There is greenery but it's easily controlled. No big trees with falling leaves to contend with in the Fall. There is a water featrue on the left. There is flat spaces like a patio but with greenery to make it interesting. It's big enough to have multiple people but small enough to easily keep clean.

This is another favorite of mine. It has it all. Shade (although there will be a leaf problem in the Fall and those trees inside the wall can grow to be a problem later), water feature, fire place, cooking and dining area. A good size too.

A whole lot of inspiration. We’re planning on building a courtyard next spring, and I have been looking for ideas. Thank you.
