A cosy courtyard and tiny outside spaces can be a challenge to landscape. They need to be beautiful and inviting, whilst keeping things simple and uncluttered.
With some good garden landscaping ideas, these areas can look amazing.
Take a look at what we did with our indigenous plants to create a design idea for a courtyard garden.
We have kept the number of plant species down (only 17 out of over 800 to choose from!).

It is important to distinguish between a grass garden and a grassland garden. Grass gardens are planted up purely with grasses.
Grassland gardens, on the other hand, include indigenous veld grasses, wildflowers, bulbs, Aloes etc., and non-living elements (wood, stone and often, water).
They are full of life, with a multitude of creatures visiting and living in them. Selecting indigenous plants suitable for grasslands and meadows will result in good biodiversity (plant, animal and micro-organism).

Running an indigenous nursery is the focus of this particular Dagbreek programme. For the past 25 years Linda De Luca, owner of Random Harvest Nursery has been growing indigenous plants of South Africa.
Starting out as simply a growing nursery, careful planning has allowed her to grow the business to what it is today - a flourishing retail indigenous nursery, tea garden and bed and breakfast accommodation.

At Random Harvest we have an amazing number of birds resident or regularly visiting us. I believe this is because we have so many different types of habitat here on the farm.
We have planted a big variety of indigenous plants. The way they are planted and the variety help create the habitat that the numerous species of birds use.
