Here are my rough drafts for the gardens for the terrace on our street. This first sketch shows the generally plan. The centre is a fountain. Around the fountain are four gardens. Each is 12 feet deep, and separated from the others by 4 foot wide paths that lead to the fountain.
Each garden is centred on a compass point. The east garden represents "dawn" - all the colours are soft pinks, pale yellows, soft blues, light greens.
The south garden represents "noon" - all the colours are bright blues, oranges, and yellows
The west garden represents "sunset" - all the colours are magentas, purples, mauves, hot pinks, reds
The north garden represents "midnight" - all the colours are dark blue and white (for stars and the moon!)
