Patio living is for outdoor lovers. There is no easier way to link your home and your yard than to garden on your patio. It can be as simple as using container plantings. This gardener has created a garden wall with an assortment of climbing clematis, so that something is always in bloom. The lamb's ear is a good choice for edging the patio. The fuzzy gray softens the grey pavers, as do the other plants that spill over the edges. Yet nothing here requires a great deal of maintenance. This is not a large space, but it is lush.
