THE NEW NATURE sanctuary at Northwest Middle School looks as if it was created by an elite landscape design firm.It wasn't. The lush courtyard, complete with waterfall and ponds, was conceived, planned and constructed solely by Northwest students. They put the finishing touches on it in a final flourish of the school year.Anyone who has visited Northwest Middle might remember the concrete slab of a courtyard. A few weeds sprouted through pavement cracks, and a couple of shrubs grew in the corners.

The city's zoning board on Tuesday denied an appeal by a Federal Hill group to create an open-air beer garden across from the Cross Street Market. Board members voted 3-2 to grant conditional approval to the courtyard beer garden in the first block of Cross Street, but the appeal needed a four-vote majority to pass. Board Chairman Geoffrey Washington, who voted for the appeal, proposed several conditions. The bar would have to operate as a restaurant, selling more food than beer.

Although the Kimco plan for the Wilde Lake Village Center has faults, we want to see the project move forward for the future of Wilde Lake Village. However, we strongly oppose demolition of the Central Building part of the horseshoe shaped building enclosing the Village Green Courtyard. Kimco proposes demolition to open up the courtyard, exposing the stores to the parking lot to make store leasing easier. Yet in fully leased stores in Kimco's three Village Centers, Hickory Ridge, Kings Contrivance and Dorsey's Search over one half of the stores cannot be seen from parking.

An area popular with frazzled attorneys and nervous litigants, the brick courtyard in front of the Anne Arundel County Court House, will return to its no-smoking status, probably by the end of the year. Court and county officials want to restore the smoking ban within the iron fence. The move is prompted by the occasional complaint and the need to continually clean up after smokers who grind cigarette butts on the small plaza in front of the historic courthouse in Annapolis. When the ban will be reimposed is unknown, but county workers are starting to make "no smoking" signs.

Surely this is one of the sweetest summers on record. We've had our share of hot, humid weather, but nothing like the usual July. If things go along as they have been, we'll continue to see spectacular, blue-skied days with highs in the 80s, cooling down at dusk. In other words, perfect weather for eating outside. Restaurants that have a terrace, patio, courtyard or deck are doing a booming business. We can't list them all, but the following will give you some idea of the range of possibilities.

Off historic Glyndon's main street, a dirt and gravel drive lined by old trees winds its way to the home of Todd and Karen Morrill. The rambling one-story house, constructed of redwood and Butler stone, sits above multiple graduated terraces with flagstone patios and decks. From the front, the home appears low to the ground and features three sets of 11-foot double doors. Warm lights from within reveal dark wood paneling, stone fireplaces, red bows wrapped around fir branches affixed to door frames and sprigs of holly on built-in shelving.

Food **1/2 (2 1/2 stars) Service ***1/2 (3 1/2 stars) Atmosphere *** (3 stars) Some locations are doomed, as restaurant after restaurant tries and fails to make a go of it there. The space at Green Spring Station, I'm happy to say, turns out not to be one of those after all. Of course, it's early days yet, but the new Tark's Grill seems to be making customers happy. The energy is certainly there. As we approached the entrance on a recent weeknight, the noise from the crowded bar was audible from across the courtyard.

Clagett, who patrols downtown on a bike for the Westminster Police Department, has increased his surveillance hours along this central courtyard across from the city's public library branch in the past week. Some Westminster residents and business owners seem to think it's making a difference.

A red-brick-like surface glows warmly against a backdrop of green grass behind the Carroll County Circuit Court annex building - where not long ago the landscape consisted of a cratered asphalt parking lot and a trash bin. Four ornamental cherry trees have been planted, with seasonal flowers at the edge of the grass. More amenities are planned for the small courtyard behind the annex building on North Court Street in Westminster. "I'm really pleased with the result," said Administrative Judge Raymond E. Beck Sr. "The employees seem to really appreciate being able to look out their windows and not see a Dumpster and cars."

KEY WEST, FLA. / / The greeter at the Blue Heaven restaurant led me through the open courtyard's seating area toward the enclosed dining room. The courtyard was crowded with diners. There was a wait at the bar for tables. There was a buzz. But the dining room was buzzless. Some tables were empty. Was I missing The True Blue Heaven Experience? "Well, maybe," the greeter said. "But some people don't like the 'too much nature' thing -- the chickens and the cats. ..." Chickens and cats?
