Brooklynn Courtyard Patio

This Brooklynn courtyard has a wonderful patio space with rectalinear stones placed in a scattered pattern. Old brick walls add a contrast for the patio with white flowering crape myrtles providing some light shade.

I didn't create the design, nor am I a contractor, but I am a landscape designer and would specify set in concrete or mortar bed to give these stones some "weight". They look to me to be quartzite, which is thin. The concrete will keep them from moving over time.

They are custom cut Mica Schist pavers from a quarry in MA. They are dry laid on 4" of 3/4" clean stone and 2" of 3/8" and the joints of filled with stabilized crushed aggregate.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Throughout history, plantings have been an important feature of these enclosed spaces. Early paintings of hortus conclusus show us how the plantings tried to create paradise on earth with raised turf seats and small plots of grass dotted with small flowers. Herbs and flowers were cultivated to provide both food and medicine.Today we are more likely to clothe the walls with climbers and wall shrubs to create not only flower and foliage interest, but also to soften the hardness of brick or stonework.

4. Get a creative look with scatter-patterned rectangular stones. Follow the lead of the designers of this Brooklyn, New York, courtyard, and use rectangular stones in several different sizes to create a random-looking (but quite intentional) pattern. If you are doing the work yourself, be sure to lay out all of your stones on the ground before beginning work and snap a picture — you can always refer to it if you run into trouble during installation.5. Create a secret-garden feel with climbing plants. Soften the edges of a mostly hardscaped yard with climbing vines and flowers. This works especially well in small urban gardens, as the climbing plants provide greenery and privacy, and make the yard seem more spacious.See more ways to use climbing plants in small gardens

Intimate? This courtyard's got it; very English. What a beautiful, comforting space for tea, lunch, reading, a nap... The no-pattern pattern of stones is not everyone's cup of tea -- and maybe not mine, either -- but the overall effect is wonderful.

Outside space turned into a alive-green room: (Spaces). This could be just around the size possible - or bit more - unless we locate bit further from the city. The thing is - I would likely be very happy about that size too. My plans will be for a larger outside space - but in the city that is a lot. I like the privacy and the green plants. Chosen for some inspiration and to show anyone who might get lost to this idea book a bit of what I think before individual parts.
