Small Spaces, Small Gardens - Gardens to Love

The smaller the space the more important each element becomes.  This is true with both interior and exterior spaces, with the difference in the outside being the ceiling height; i.e,  the sky that  is gloriously endless.   At Gardens to Love, we start with the architecture, whether it be a gate, a wall or a pathway.
