A damp, overgrown yard becomes an inviting space to eat and relax.
This tiny courtyard was damp and dark despite facing South. By removing overgrown trees and simplifying the levels the space is much more comfortable and inviting. An old concrete wall was replaced with a simple white wall which reflects the light and acts as a backdrop to low maintenance grasses and mediterranean plants. The garden is now inviting to all the members of the family including children and the tortoise!
