If you ask us, a cluster of potted greens could definitely pass for a garden. Here, an eclectic arrangement manages to transform a modest front porch into a plant-filled escape.

A wall of climbing roses, chic rattan accent pieces, and a true blue tile are just a few of the reasons why we can’t stop obsessing over Emily Henderson’s new patio

Hydrangeas and climbing roses make for one seriously good-looking pair and even manage to conceal the teeny, tiny porch. Lessons learned? Covering up unsightly gutters with an abundance of florals is definitely the way to go.

A dreamy walkway that comes lined with rows upon rows of pink hydrangeas is about as covet-worthy as it gets. Plant these summer classics in your mini garden for months of show-stopping blooms.

Not all gardens are made up of florals. What this refreshingly monochromatic porch lacks in color it certainly makes up for with a bounty of greens, cleverly set within the confines of the area. Hanging planters housing ferns complement the empty space with a welcomed dose of color and texture.
