Raised kitchen garden planters made the sloped front yard into a pretty and functional space. Redwood steps and gravel patches ease access between the beds. And the whole lovely scene can also be enjoyed from the shade of the porch.
Dine al fresco at this outdoor black metal table surrounded by matching chairs topped with neutral cushions on the flagstone patio. Enjoy the scent of perennials like lavender in the raised beds. After dinner, lounge by the fire pit on the outdoor sectional.
This outdoor garden at the Weingart Center in Los Angeles features a pebble concrete walkway leading to a three-tier garden fountain. Raised beds line either side of the walkway and provide a spot for greenery and trees with vibrant purple leaves.
In an effort to maintain the intimacy of this wooded backyard, a space with two levels of entertaining was created. The upper screened-in porch is connected to the lower flagstone patio with large fieldstone steppers. These two tiers seem to be woven into the mature landscape. A dry creek was also installed to provide better drainage.
