A tiny garden done right

Small garden in black and green

I’m really liking all of this black and green I’ve been seeing lately. This is the side and back yard of a tiny garden that felt quite usable and spacious. Black painted fences added depth and set off the greenery. A limited variety of very neatly clipped evergreen shrubs were used, not a variegated or spiky leaf in sight. Materials were limited to brick pavers, and planters and a fountain in creamy stone. Very few flowering plants were used, and only in white.

The garden, by designers Lisa Brown and Dorrit Kingsbury, was part of the Gamble Garden Tour.
