Boston-based photographer Cambria Grace and stylist Lauren Wells, partners at Wells and Grace, also teamed up recently to offer an intimate glimpse of Wells’ small-space city garden. Here’s how to recreate the look on any terrace, deck, or patio:

Above: The walled terrace is big enough for both lounge space and a dining table. In one corner hangs a hammock. In another, a butterfly chair has a removable (and washable) canvas cover. A pair of Butterfly Chairs with natural canvas covers is $350 from Potted.
Above: Measuring 46 inches long, Fermob’s Folding Bistro Table seats four comfortably and is available in more than 20 colors; $483 from Bistro Furniture.
Above: A set of two Fermob Bistro Metal Chairs is $216 from Bistro Furniture.
Above: A 60-inch-wide woven cotton Rope Hammock capable of supporting 250 pounds is $95.57 from Amazon.
Above: To make similar chair cushions, Swaying Palms outdoor fabric from Tommy Bahama is $9.90 a yard from Fabric.
Above: A horizontal slat fence makes an enclosed patio or deck feel more spacious. Here the fence is a backdrop for a half-dozen metal wall shelves, mounted at staggered heights.
Above: Constructed of iron, a generously sized Half Circle Plant Shelf is 16 inches wide and 25 inches deep and has a 13-inch high bracket; $48 apiece from Terrain.
Above: A 6-inch clay Terra Cotta Pot has a drainage hole and is $1.32 from Home Depot.
Above: Large tropical plants in pots make the space feel like a garden.
