Stone Courtyard Walls: Phoenix
This semi-private Phoenix courtyard design’s stone work walls match the original masonry of the front porch and accent areas for a fluid look. Working with the tones found in the natural stone, the front yard xeriscaping adds color and interest in the coordinating landscape stone. A lovely paver sidewalk leads from the street to the ornate iron gate allowing entry into this handsome Arizona home’s courtyard.
Additionally, the same paver now creates a driveway border to visually pull the sidewalk and drive together without exceeding the client’s budget. The pavers appear again inside the stone walls as the courtyard’s flooring.
While the exact brown color of the pavers is not found in the stone facing, it does flow with the tones. It is often impossible to match the color of stone to the those available in pavers. However, there is usually an option that gives us an accent color or one that blends with the overall coloring quite nicely.
Which Phoenix courtyard designs are best for you?
A courtyard is essential to most Scottsdale – Phoenix area homes. Both semi-private and secluded are popular extensions of front yard landscaping, and some homeowners want both, using the secluded space for an outdoor room. It’s all up to your preference, the available space, and your budget. Whether you have one or two, the right Scottsdale or Phoenix courtyard design will enhance your lifestyle and curb appeal.
