Jo posted some garden photos yesterday and it got me desperately wanting to get some gardening done around my house. Since I bought this place in December, this is my first opportunity to have at the yard. When I came across the portfolio of Los Angeles-based Elysian Landscapes, the desire to get my hands dirty grew exponentially. With a modern edge, their landscaping includes some awesome furnishings and colourful plants. These should definitively inspire me to put gardening on the top of my list of things to do this weekend.

I found Megan Van Linda's beautiful landscaping while checking participating designers' websites at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase. Her gardens are so pretty with soft lush plantings and stylish furniture and garden "rooms". I know what I'm doing this weekend. I'm buying succulents and moss to fill my clam shell. With such a wonderful eye and a super green thumb it's no wonder she was asked to deign an alfresco space at the showcase.
Kim has a small rather bare backyard. We were only discussing the other day what to do with it now that summer has arrived. Normally on a Sunday Kim scours Flickr for inspiring finds and I thought I would do the same. After typing deck and garden into the search box I didn't have to go far to find all the inspiration I needed. I found modular.garden. Checking their profile I discovered that they are one of the UK's leading garden design companies. Not hard to see why. These are fabulous small space solutions with interesting hard landscaping and gorgeous plantings. With their designs the indoors and out meld seamlessly and "garden rooms" provide much needed extra space. Check out their website for cool before and after shots as well as plans for some of these gardens. I love Flickr finds don't you?
