Some lovely 'gardens'... and the bold use of colour is quite striking... but some are less 'garden' and rather more paving + planters/ paving + raised beds. Those that are solid fencing on 3 sides look unforgiving though, and create a 'boxed in', claustrophobic space. Not good imo.

The fencing in picture 8 would drive me nuts. It looks so messy! Not somewhere conducive to gently unwinding after a hard day.

I find number 8 disorientating, if painted to match table it would be more relaxing..
