The urban backyard is a very specific problem and I tend to collect ideas for them as I wander along, but this photo just stopped me in my tracks. I've never seen a whirlpool arrangement of bricks before and I love how they mirrored the planting beds to go with the flow. Extra points for creativity.
I think its interesting they used just greens rather than flowers to fill out the landscape. Perhaps to make the red of the bricks and chairs stand out? Or maybe they just didn't have the right light to grow flowers? But it comes off as a little cool to me without anything but green plants.
