Beautiful, but how about something with beautiful AND edible landscaping? Would love to see that.
Thank you for this! I desperately needed some city backyard inspiration. There's a wreck of a yard at my soon-to-be apartment that needs love badly.
Every single garden looks needed and cherished, I guess the scarcity value of open space in the city makes us appreciate even the smallest patch. This post makes me nostalgic for city life!
these are AWESOME!
the red chairs in the photos from foras... anyone know what those chairs are called, if they have a name?
gorgeous, esp. the one with round table, rectangular pond and climbing plant wall
These are simply beautiful. Just the inspiration we've been looking for, as we embark on a radical city garden overhaul. Thanks for sharing.
I love back gardens. They offer intimacy and a safe place for kids. Thank you for sharing your beautiful finds.
Very nice selection of well designed and thought out spaces. Good job!
