A welcoming sunroom opens out to a Mediterranean-inspired patio with a simple pergola for shade. Brightly colored pottery is used throughout the outdoor living space, while lush landscaping pours over the pond and patio to create a relaxing oasis.
This cottage style fence and gate compliments the stately architecture with dramatic but tranquil flare. Every nook and corner in the landscape was a perfect opportunity to create a creative landscape vignette.
This home is located in Ohio, but homeowners wanted their outdoor areas to look like they belonged in California. To answer that wish, landscape designers combined native Ohio plants, faux trees and tropical plants to create a gorgeous garden.
A long lap pool stretches through this yard and is bordered by a lush mix of tropical trees, shrubs and flowers. The gorgeous garden reflects in the pool's water. At the end of the pool, a relaxing seating area is perfect for enjoying the atmosphere and enjoying the sunshine.
This gorgeous garden gets less structured and more native the farther you get away from the home. Large square planters contain succulents and flowers in an orderly manner, while native plants and ornamental grasses take over as the land extends in the distance. A wood deck provides a perfect vantage point to enjoy the Japanese-style garden.
Large boulders create a separation from the perfectly trimmed grass in this side yard up to the planted section of colorful outdoor flowers. Yellow, lavender and burgundy blooms add beautiful and bright natural color to the brown and gray rocks and vivid green grass.
