A hand-tufted wool pile area rug in a muted, gravel-colored tone anchors the design of the guest bedroom in the 2012 HGTV Urban Oasis. The bed features sand-colored linen upholstery, which contrasts against the dark wood nightstands.
The raised beds were used to solve drainage problems the lot had. Stone walls allowed for screen plantings along the fence and have room to plant seasonal color in front of them to add some appeal to them. A dry creek bed with oversized gravel meanders throughout the backyard to catch all water runoff from the patio and surrounding beds.
This home's property is large enough to include a chicken coop, raised garden beds for growing vegetables and a garden shed. Pea gravel walkways stand out handsomely against the wood trim, fence and shed.
A driveway of large concrete slabs surrounded by a bed of gravel leads to the garage of this midcentury modern ranch home. Adjacent to the driveway can be seen a lush, green lawn with stone slab walkway leading to the front door.
The elevated planting bed houses bamboo that will grow to provide beautiful cover for the front of the home. A dark wood entry is a beautiful warm-tone contrast to the white exterior walls. A spacious gravel driveway allows for easy maneuvering while plant life adds life and shade to the yard.
The landscaping surrounding this Southwestern style home is low-maintenance and low-water, with beds of tan gravel contrasting sharply with bright green plants and trees. Slim channels funnel water in and around the yard.
