Spring is here and Summer is on the way. That means lots of time to spend outside and enjoy the warmer weather.  I've been revamping my backyard all Spring. I removed some of the St. Augustine grass and decided to create a courtyard or basically an outdoor living room.  My home is a 1937 Spanish Revival so I built this collection around items that would work in my space.

Everything is very natural in my courtyard. The space is decomposed granite filled with terra cotta, black and white planters.  I wanted to keep the palette simple ( no bold colors) and the materials very simple ( metal and stone). I am in love with that vertical garden and hope to create something like soon if I can fit it into the space. Hopefully this will give you some inspiration and go outside and create your own special outdoor space. Happy planting!
