The landscape architects of this space explored the use of scale, shape and color to create a detailed, nuanced patio, garden and yard. The square beds containing red plants and flowers bring a sense of order, while the garden beyond feels wild and untamed; this creates a pleasing sense of balance.
Flowers and plants encircle this outdoor sitting area, making it feel like a natural part of the landscape. A bright blue umbrella complements the chairs on a landing below and offers relief from the sun.
To turn this backyard into the serene haven imagined by the homeowner, landscape designers cleared out the patchy lawn and replaced it with fruit trees, flowering shrubs and perennials. The careful mix ensures there's something to enjoy in any season.
