OK, not really. But the narrow water channel and pool that surround Scott Endres’ back patio in St. Paul, Minnesota, make this patio seem like an island of tranquility. It’s a tiny space that’s been transformed into the perfect spot to sip a morning cup of coffee or share cocktails with friends in the evening. Containers go a long way to make this space personal and lively. A low tabletop landscape beckons you to examine it a bit closer but doesn’t block your conversation. The containers flanking the back door are dynamic and fun, just like their designer.
