You own a small yard and love formal garden styles? Why don't you transform your yard into a small French courtyard, like this one designed by Isler Homes?

The perfect geometry offered by the square parterre and surrounding border, the carefully trimmed boxwood and impeccable row of topiaries and the polychrome effect of the beige gravel over the planting make this difficult to resist.

As an invitation to sit and admire the scenery but also to add a welcoming touch to this formal courtyard, a bench has been judiciously added.
