Steal this Look - Crisp Green and White Courtyard

This garden is from an April 2010 Issue of Veranda. I have it tagged for small garden inspiration, because I like the simple plantings and timeless feeling. The space provides space for outdoor entertaining, but with the use of the Hornbeams and additional plantings give enough greenery to make the space a garden oasis. Below are details on the plants and materials used create the look at your home.

Details of the Plantings 
The photo only shows the right side of the garden, but I assume that the plantings are mirrored on the left side for a formal design. Repetition of the same plants and colors creates a calming effect and by placing beds long the walls the hard edges of the Limestone and Brick are softened.  

Detail of Flowers on Table
The Angelonia are planted in the basket. This allows for the flower arrangement to last much longer that traditional cut flowers. 
The Dining table in the garden was from Mecox Gardens and the chairs were from Michael Taylor, both of which are very expensive. You could get a similar look with these Restoration Hardware chairs and a table from Oly Studio.
