Try typing in Kensington and going to the second entry down Lisajane and browse the website listed. It is a tiny city garden. Not so small as yours, but gives inspiration and ideas about small space shaded gardens. It can be daunting looking at these fabulous spaces done by creative people but worth a web visit.
