Ultra-Tiny, Super-Small Garden?

We're in full house-hunting mode, and I've just realized that in order to get the size house that we desire--tiny--we may need to settle for a tiny garden as well.

On yesterdays viewing, we found a gorgeous little place, in the community that we want. It has gorgeous french doors, stone tiles, and large deck and the smallest patch of earth that they're calling a front yard. I thought this would be a good time to think about gardening options

What to do with a tiny garden? Why, fill it with plants, of course.

Stone makes small green spaces elegant.
Great idea for a walkway.

Stone allows plant to run wild but keeps sidewalks clear.

Low light plants may be a necessity

You can always build up.
