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.
An elegant outdoor dining spot sits under a tree with hanging paper lanterns. Raised flower beds with ornamental grasses border the bench seating, which is paired with brown wicker chairs to provide plenty of room when entertaining.
A raised flower bed with a cement bird bath adds curb appeal to this brick home featured on HGTV's Buying and Selling. Low-maintenance landscaping around the walkway created a charming entrance to this one-story home with a two-car garage.
In the back of the home, a private driveway leads into an attached garage with elegant wood doors. Raised flower beds set into large, stone retaining walls give the exterior of the space color and an elegantly manicured look. The two raised beds break at a wrought iron gate that opens to reveal the private courtyard that leads into the home from the rear.
Raised garden beds can add vegetables, flowers and even a design element to your garden. Configure the Suncast tiered raised garden bed, sold through retailers such as Wayfair and made of plastic resin, in a variety of shapes.
The Mediterranean-inspired outdoor space combines multiple areas seamlessly, from the raised garden beds and hot tub to the outdoor dining room. Lush flower beds line the backyard, while potted plants and flowers add life and color around the space.
