In this small courtyard, the turf was torn up and replaced by a gravel base that supports a gorgeous dining table and flower filled containers. Plus, the homeowners have a lot more time to enjoy the space because they no longer have to mow. One way to create a sense of space in a small garden is to put some curves into your garden paths.
A wood structure offers a restful spot at the center of a shade garden. Garden ornaments, such as a metal globe or sundial, are playful accents to the plants. An open air gazebo at the top of a gentle slope hosts a table and seats. Draw birds and butterflies with extras, such as a ground level birdbath. Placed at the entrance to the gazebo, a large urn supports an abundant growth of bright red begonias.
