There are many ways to present the green feel of plants in a home. Design a dry garden, vertical garden, put various pots on a shelf, or even make a garden in the room. Park in space or often called the inner court is one way that nature and the outside atmosphere can be felt inside the house.
Like a park, the inner court is open and semi open, can be closed with a transparent roof or no roof at all. Imagine, not fresh air or rain water that can be felt inside the house? When worried about rain, the roof design with an open-close system makes it easy. With such a design, the inner court provides other benefits, besides being just a green view in the room, adding aesthetics, and giving a broad impression. The advantage is that the inner court can make the room glow with sunlight breaking through, and maximize air circulation.
To design it, no specific area is needed. Large house or limited area can be present. Even so, the position of the inner court is very important to note. Instead, place the garden of this room in a part of the house that requires adequate air circulation, such as in the back or a location where all family members gather, including the dining room and family room.
Then, what is the inner court designed for? Generally, the inner court is dominated by rocky elements, such as coral and plants that are not too high, such as grass, shrubs or shrubs. In addition, choose plants that need a little heat from the sun to facilitate treatment, for example Sansevieria plants (tongue-in-law). Trees can also be planted, just don’t place too many trees so the house doesn’t feel cramped, full, or damp. The water pool is also an interesting mix for the inner court. However, ponds need a fairly difficult treatment. If not treated properly, the pool can moss and bring in mosquitoes.
In addition to the existence of a pool, the open inner court roof is certainly an easy way for mosquitoes to enter the house. This problem is certainly one of the risks that must be considered. Overcome this problem by installing a mosquito wire. If there is a pool, clean the pool regularly. That way, the inner court can have an interesting view and become more enjoyable.
