Remember when I posted about wanting to be outside more and I featured my friend who designed a small garden for outside of his condo? Well if not, please read it [here]. I wanted to give an update on Paulo's garden as he has finished it and has entered it in Re-nest for Apartment Therapy's Small, Cool Outdoors 2011 Contest! Please rate Paulo's garden on Apartment Therapy for support! Voting ends in less than 48 hours from today - 8/19/11! As you can see, this is the original design that Paulo created.
And this is the finished result! The entire garden's foot print comes in at just under 100 sq. feet. He built the flower boxes and the trellis and of course did all the landscaping himself. I believe he ran into some condo board regulations so he had to downsize the trellis but the final product is pretty close to his drawing.
Paulo and Eddy (my brother) are quite lucky to have such a great space to enjoy the outdoors. Eddy being a chef probably makes the most delicious food that they can enjoy outdoors. Paulo also mentioned that one of his favorite aspects to this east in garden is that the table is just below the kitchen window, making it an easy access pass through! I'm thinking it's time for a party and some delicious Sangria!
