As seen on HGTV's "Flipping the Block," sisters Shauna Williams and Anicka Marshall opted for a mix of artificial turf and teak parquet tiles on their patio for a lush, low-maintenance outdoor experience.
This lush suburban backyard includes a hand-laid gray brick paver and terra-cotta brick walkway, ornamental grasses, evergreen foliage and perennials. A wooden privacy fence, gray stone wall and fast growing privacy shrubs surround the garden.
Rather than pay to remove the unsightly metal fence from her Chicago apartment patio, Erica Lugbill of Lugbill Designs covered it up with stained and pressure-treated lumber. The horizontal panels create privacy that the pre-existing metal fence didn’t offer. Red chairs provide a fun pop of color against the brown and gray tones of the patio.
A white privacy fence encloses this backyard patio while still allowing the space to feel open. String lights and paper lanterns provide soft outdoor lighting above a painted picnic table and stainless steel grill.
A lavender privacy fence is a pretty backdrop against this outdoor dining area designed by Jaime Durie. Built-in benches with aqua-colored cushions are paired with woven arm chairs to provide plenty of seating while entertaining.
On a Chicago rooftop, a stunning panel made of COR-TEN steel is cut out in the shape of a tree to accent the metal fencing. The panel, added by Topiarius, which specializes in outdoor living on rooftops, also offers some privacy without completely blocking the views.
