There’s nothing more soothing than relaxing with the sounds and smells of nature. If you live in a home with a concrete backyard, and you’ve been wishing you had a garden instead where you can unwind, here’s an innovative solution for you!

You still get to enjoy taking a nap or reading a great book on a wonderful lawn and you get a great conversation starter thrown in!

The backsplash tile is from Ann Sacks. Photo by: Jeremy Liebman
