      When considering an application of materials on an external wall, you need to think about three things: how the material will react with the wall itself, where the material will be attached and how it will be adhered to the surface of the wall. This perforated copper sheeting is a clever approach to adding visual interest, texture and dimension, and the designer considered all three of the above issues. The perforation allows for evaporation, which means there will be fewer issues with mold and mildew. In addition, the perforations make the sheeting weight lighter, reducing the chance that the copper will be too heavy for the wall studs to support the weight.

      Accentuate the positive. Like interiors can benefit from accent walls, the garden can certainly benefit from a strong vertical design element, like a wall. Perforated strips of copper have been installed in a horizontal pattern to create a dimensional panel at the edge of this patio. It serves as a work of art, a privacy wall and a major focal point in the garden. Because the rest of the palette elsewhere is mostly black and neutral, the copper takes on a warm glow that infuses the space with interest, character and a point of view.More: What to Do in Your Garden Now

      Here the large copper strips are pierced for texture, but it is actually their installation with several strips bowed out from the wall that creates a deeply textural wall treatment. This would work indoors as well as it does in this exterior courtyard.
