Simple basics of planting a courtyard patio with containers and potted plants. When planted like this, there's a lot more room and possibility to vary the type and variety of flowers and plants that you may not get with conventional gardens with inground beds. Along with the ideas for the paver floor and wrought iron fence, it's about the extent of the design. However, there's room for more if desired.
In courtyards and patio gardens where there are no inground planting and flower beds, it's necessary to use planters and container gardens. While this is great for decorating, the down side is that usually there is no access to an automated watering system either which means watering by hand. However, for the creative, it's always possible to create a simple hose type watering system of drip irrigation.
