Small city garden

Here seen from the basement, where the bedroom is situated.
Cosy outside living room. Sitting underneath the pergola with a protecting cloth. Garden made up of 50-50 plants-hard materials. Transparent bridge over a small pond. Lighting provided for evening use.

Arjan Boekel

What Houzz contributors are saying:

13. Add evening ambience. Make those future summer evenings more magical by adding outdoor lighting around your seating area and along paths. As with indoor lighting, choosing more but smaller lights is better than having a few really bright ones.See more of this city garden designed to shine at nightFind a landscape pro near youTell us: Are you dreaming up new plans for your garden this year?
