This is a cool patio area that is both a backyard and a courtyard. I love the mix and think that more people should do this with their backyard areas. The hanging plants are totally awesome, and the little trees are great too. I also like the stonework, especially the variety of stone tiles that they used. The table and chairs are nice, and the addition of the big umbrella makes it so you can use this area throughout the year. This would be a great spot to host dinner parties and other social events. You could easily find room for a grill.
