As we all know, the closest thing to nature is the first floor, but the relative privacy is also a certain threat. If the courtyard on the first floor is effectively designed, beautiful and practical, it is best.
Without affecting daylighting and ventilation, the garden border area can be planted with some tall deciduous trees and flowering shrubs, which not only block the outside noise, but also protect the privacy. Succulents are a favorite of many people. Planting some lovely succulents in the garden is another chic landscape.
