Greenwich Village BackyardTransitional Patio, New York
A dark backyard was given a new life with dramatic additions of built in planting beds, custom cut salvaged pavers, green screen trellis and a ton of charm. The reclaimed barn doors add a focal point to the east wall while the custom built two-tier planting system allows vines to fill this garden which spans two floors of the client's home.

5. Create a Garden NookWhether you have a large garden and are looking for a secondary seating area or have a small or urban patio and need a backyard focal point, a little outdoor seating nook can be the perfect solution, offering a place to escape to on your own or with another person. Even if you have a small outdoor area, don’t feel compelled to fill it with furniture. A couple of chairs and a table in a corner can be enough and will leave some breathing room for plants, containers or a shade structure. Learn more about how to create a mini outdoor retreat
In small gardens and narrow rectangular lots, position chairs so they are nestled in a corner or backed by a wall, hedge or large potted plants and oriented to look outward. This arrangement will provide a nook-like feeling of privacy and security.
