Just looking at this patio makes me feel calm. Sitting there on a lovely evening as the sun goes down with a nice glass of wine. Great.
The columns help to keep back the heat of the sun. The flora brings the garden closer to the house and the tiles help to keep the area cool and clean.
One thing to note: Please avoid using plastic plant pots. They don't add anything positive to the ambience.


  1. I could come home to that if I didn't have to clean and water it all. :)

  2. Laura,
    Thank you for taking the time to comment.
    I agree! Having a big space like that is wonderful but cleaning it is a completely different matter! As I am not one for having 'hired help' around all the time I choose smaller living spaces personally.

    This patio could give you ideas for transforming even a small balcony on the 3rd floor of a building in NY, say. Then you would only need to consider a few plants and their watering requirements!
    Thanks again,


Share your ideas with me. Thank you.
