hidden garden with a comfy place to sit. It's all covered by tangled trees, that's quite an intimate space and i like having a little bit of intimacy in my back yard. It's a great idea for small gardens!
An attached pergola can add warmth to an otherwise sparse exterior. Without this shallow pergola, the French doors and back expanse of this house would seem stark. With it, the space gains architectural detail and becomes an inviting nook.
I would love to have a section of garden-style courtyard on our next property. Someplace with rich plants, a moving breeze, and the ability for absolute privacy, then have an arched gateway that takes you to the rest of the yard.
