Cambridge Mini-Garden 8 PHOTOS

A small Cambridge garden needed color and spatial definition. Two mini-patios, one for sitting and one for dining, connect with a slanted bluestone path and lots of plantings for year-round color and interest. Vertical surfaces are utilized and planted with vines to help the small space sing lushness. Lighting and a rich mix of materials: bluestone, brick, cobble, copper, stainless steel - make the space feel lived-in, layered, and lively.
