Hello! I live in a tropical country, and I love to read Apartment Therapy. I'm sharing some pictures of my small backyard. It has two spaces, the garden (3m x 4m) and the terrace (3m x 2m).

The garden space is partly grass, and I put bricks to make a planter space for tropical flowers and plants. It was a challenge to grow here since it is a shaded space — at the back there is a 2 story house. I planted many different plants and finally got some that can grow here: heliconia, iris, schefflera, impatiens and anturium mainly. In the terrace I put 3 chairs and a table. It was a simple and inexpensive project. I hope you like it!

Thanks, Arlen!
