Daily Garden: Modern Dutch Courtyard

I luurrve this garden and patio.  the combination of rustic with a little modern and a little retro is the aesthetic I think I try to achieve for my own living spaces.   As far as outdoor kitchens go, the way that this keeps it finctional, and simple so appealing.  The classic shape of the Weber BBQ is cool but changed up to be ‘built in’ (and converted to gas?)

The other idea I take from this garden is the orientation of the patio area.  Usually the patio is located right out the back door and anchored to the back of the house, but here it runs down the side of the garden creating an interesting sheltered space that looks out over the garden.  It makes the garden feel more like a gallery courtyard don’t you think?
