Most people think that a bench should go in a nice sunny spot in the garden but adding one to the alley not only looks wonderfully quaint, it also makes it an inviting place. It tells you that this is a space to be used and enjoyed.
The alleyway is the perfect place for a little water feature. That lovely gurgling sound as you step out of the back door is like a wave of tranquillity.
There’s no such thing as dead space, there is only unused space, and unused space equals potential. So, get into your garden and make it as beautiful as it can be.
