High Wall Courtyard Planting Ideas

Interior courtyards can often feel very closed in and cramped. This is especially true with small courtyards with very high walls. A skyline view extended up and creating a large expanse of blank vertical space can feel very confined as well as uninteresting.

In this courtyard garden, character plants have been used to break up the space and create a percieved ceiling that draws the attention away from the long expanse to the top of the high wall. By using only a partial cover, the expanse is broken up. If we were to cover the entire wall space with plantings we would create the same problem with just a different element.
