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.
