The plants in this home's outdoor area are sparse, but very intentional. Sculptural succulents and grasses stand out against gray gravel and the building's white stone exterior. Strips of green grass turn pavers into a geometric statement.
A mix of faux grass, cement pavers and outdoor tile surround the mirror-glass pool in the backyard of HGTV Dream House 2020. This glamourous space is perfect for relaxing with coffee in the morning or entertaining a gaggle of friends and family.
Around the corner from the formal lawn and brick retaining wall is the gated entrance to the side yard (on the right side of the house). New grass, pavers and boxwoods add a welcoming touch to the landscape design.
When the owners of this Santa Barbara home grew weary of their worn and tired side yard they decided to consult a professional landscape designer. Ashley Farrell installed synthetic grass and flagstone pavers and framed it with Pennisetum and colorful daylilies.
A symmetrical, geometric arrangement of built-in and freestanding planters adds interest to the exterior of this contemporary California home. Green grass between concrete pavers softens the walkway, and tall plants create a layered, interesting look for the garden design. Stacked stone on the home's facade blends with the colors of the sandy beach beyond.
The stacked stone facade of this contemporary California home is brought to life with a well-planned array of greenery. Built-in concrete planters hold succulents and other native plants, arranged with taller plantings in the back for a layered look. Patches of grass between concrete pavers soften the sandy colors of the architecture.
Plenty of planters, both built-in and freestanding, hold succulents and other Southern California foliage, making this exterior walkway come alive. Patches of grass between concrete pavers mix with the plants to soften the sandy, earthy colors of the architecture. Sited below street level, the space feels less like a utilitarian walkway and more like a private sunken garden.
