COURTYARD VILLA'S ARE WHAT YOU MAKE THEM **NUMBER TWO
 
Many of you have asked what can be done about privacy in the backyard of a courtyard villa...Here is one example , I lived in this one for two years and many of the perks I really miss.....

Very nice!

I am having a hard time thinking about giving up a back yard that is not fenced in and private - seems like you give up the use of your yard and are stuck in the enclosed lanai or have to go to the expense of adding a large birdcage. Even backing onto a golf course, you really can't use the back yard.

Barring a place to let the dog go, you quickly quit missing having your own yard. My old house had 1/4 of an acre. If you're into gardening, you can still plant some trees in the back. Flowers around the side.

I live in a patio villa. My bbq is outside on the patio with an outdoor table. I happily live on my lanai. My friend doesn't have a patio (be darned if I know what her home is called) nor is it fenced in. In the back, she has plants, two benches, a couple of in-the-ground bird feeders and a birdbath. If you have a dog, you can get one of the invisible fences. So, you're really not giving up all that much even though you think you are at first.

Fumar, absolutely beautiful. I had no idea that you're allowed to plant that much foliage. Is that only allowed in the back yard or the front also?

I'm looking forward to my CYV and I'm inviting you over for a lasagna dinner, you and Mrs. Fumar, to give me ideas.

You've made my day. Thanks for sharing. Kath :redface:

All homes in every price range can be made beautiful in the villages. Its not the size of the house its what you do with it. Nice job

Fumar, beautifully done! Also looks like very low maintenance. What company did you use?
