This is the very beginning of my Secret Garden Room ~ that big picture window is the one above the spa tub off the master bedroom ~ This is the 'cool' (north) side of the house; I should be able to plant (in pots & tubs) shade loving plants close to the house. I especially want a specimen maple in a big pot back in that right corner!!

A long view of the space ~ it is HUGE! It is 15 x 28 ft., or 4.57 X 8.53 m. On the fence (sunny)side, there will be 2 more feeding trough planters for veggies (the one we already have is just out of the pic on the right). On the wall at the bottom left, the husband is going to build me a potting bench with shelves above.
More of what I have so far ~ I want to get a slab of glass?/acrylic? for the iron coffee table, and a cushion for my old chaise lounge ~
The large branch nailed to the wall we brought from Yuck-berg; the 2 carved panels between the windows I want to tint/color somehow...

I love your outdoor space. I also like what you have done with the planter pot and the lovely white stand. Well done! Thanks for sharing and hopefully you can visit my blog and leave me a comment.
