The art of the urban pa tio After a busy day in the city, there is nothing sweeter than being able to come home and kick your feet up in a lush green space. You’ll forget you’re in the middle of the city as you take in the fresh air of your transformed urban oasis. Surround yourself with an eclectic mix of richly textured, easy care plants in containers that can move with you when your lease is up. Those you see here won’t keep you chained to the hose, even with the reflected heat from surrounding structures. Mobile tables made from wooden shipping crates paired with plush ottoman seating are easy to rearrange as needed when entertaining.
