Looking closely, you will certainly notice a huge variety of options, styles, design finds, and therefore we will definitely note that the appearance and convenience of your site depends on your imagination, taste, financial capabilities, as well as the desire to work and create.

Brief content of the article:

Where to begin

First of all, you need to remember that the main element of your site is the house itself, and therefore it is necessary to start planning the arrangement of the entire adjacent territory from the architectural design in which it is decorated. Note that the question of how the arrangement of a private courtyard will be made directly depends on the area of ​​\u200b\u200bthe site.

So, if the size of your yard is small, do not experiment too much with different styles, let it be some one direction.

Having become a happy owner of a plot of a large area, it becomes real to try to make some kind of division of the territory and embody several design styles, but they should smoothly transition and combine with each other. This is achieved through various methods, for example, plant hedges, or use special fences, flower beds, garden paths.

Before you start planning and decorating the yard with your own hands, you need to analyze the landscape of the territory. So, all the bumps, potholes, pits need to be leveled or filled up. If there are slopes, they must be strengthened.

Before proceeding with the arrangement, it is necessary to come up with and create some kind of drainage system, otherwise during the rain you run the risk of running into trouble in the form of water flows where they should not be. If there are financial opportunities, it is better to do preliminary work on leveling the site by attracting special equipment, this will save you unnecessary difficulties, and the quality will be much higher.


Remember, a well-thought-out plan that takes into account all the nuances of your landscape, and also provides for a phased distribution of all work, is a certain key to the success of your undertaking.

In order to create a beautiful courtyard design, first of all, you need to think through everything completely: you must clearly understand what and where to place, in what sequence the work will be carried out and what should eventually work out.

When creating a plan, you need to consider the following points:

  • The distribution of sunlight and shade in your area depending on the time of day;
  • Consider the climatic conditions for your area. The duration of the summer and winter periods, the direction of the winds, the abundance of precipitation;
  • In winter, it will be necessary to remove snow. Think about where you will put it, and how you will take it out of the site;
  • Consider how the site itself will be connected to the main street. Take into account the possibilities for emergency work — extinguishing fires, as well as actions in other emergency situations;
  • Be mindful of the size and composition of your family. Consider what you plan to do on your site, what needs may arise in the future.

In general, site planning must be carried out at the very initial stage, when tasks have not yet been built. In this case, it is much simpler: the whole layout, the style will be more harmonious, it is possible to carry out zoning from scratch and provide for all aspects of the arrangement.

However, the situation often turns out quite differently: you have purchased a finished house and begin to rebuild it, and as a result, the arrangement of the territory. In this case, it all depends on the degree of change you have planned. If the design of the main house is modified, it is necessary to plan the arrangement of the entire territory, taking into account the new stylistic decision.

For the case when only cosmetic repairs will be carried out, it is necessary to equip the site in such a way that, having created the necessary comfort and coziness, the main building harmoniously fits. This is already a task of a different degree of complexity and its solution largely depends on your taste and your capabilities.

Do not overload the site with various elements and zones, everything should be done with taste, carrying the corresponding practical value.

Let’s note one more important point. If your site is not planned to be used for a vegetable garden, and your plans are only to get away from the hustle and bustle of cities and everyday life, you may not care about where you will store the grown products, how to collect them, etc.

Otherwise, it is necessary to combine practicality and beauty, and this is a completely different distribution and planning. For example, it becomes necessary to pay special attention to the arrangement of the backyard — although it is hidden from prying eyes, it should remain an integral part of the overall composition, and besides, it is here that it is optimal to build all outbuildings.

In addition, it is here that it is convenient to place a car park, or build a sports ground.

General remarks on arrangement

When all the necessary preparatory steps have been taken, there is a clear plan of what we will do, the area is leveled and cleared, the drainage system is in order, we get to work.

If you have a fairly large area, divided into separate zones, you need to think about how to make a distinction. Several solutions are possible here. For example, you can make hedges or build fences.

One option to make a visual distinction is to build artistically designed lawns or flower beds. You can make a beautiful courtyard in a private house using arched structures when creating fences and passages. Special garden screens will look very nice on the site.

The sports ground is separated by a special low fence, decorated with climbing plants.

An integral element of the arrangement of the yard is the system of paths. These should not be paths, but specially designed garden paths. When designing the landscaping of the yard, the paths can be used as natural and functional dividers of individual zones.

When carrying out work on the arrangement, do not forget about the correctness of geometric shapes. Your site should not look like a pile, everything should fit harmoniously and be subordinate to the chosen concept.

Last advice: when arranging, try to use natural materials more, they will perfectly match the surrounding nature and create a unique feeling of peace and comfort.

All of the above are the most general tips and tricks. Of course, the simplest solution is to order design development and work from specialists, but only you can create what you want, exactly as you see it.

Having bought a house far from the city, making your own arrangement of the yard in the village, you will certainly experience an incomparable feeling of satisfaction, create for yourself and your loved ones a corner of well-being, happiness and peace.
