Beautiful side yard with a boxwood lined gravel path, climbing white roses, and small narrow trees along the fence. A small space side yard garden, this stepping stone path takes you from the driveway, down the side yard, to back gardens.
The 9,500 square foot 1843 Greek revival Horton home is a classic Charleston side yard house whose garden occupies one side of the home's lot. A fanciful red and white striped buggy is one way to traverse the city's historic streets in style.
HGTV designers turned this large, austere side yard into a stunning outdoor living room with fabulous landscaping and a creative bench design. Bamboo trees planted around the perimeter add a feeling of privacy to this comfortable outdoor space.
The ground-level patio area of the HGTV Dream Home 2013 features all-weather woven chairs that cozy up to a glass-topped table, ideal for both formal dinners or a table surface to focus on family craft projects.A makeshift chandelier of zinc hexagon-shaped lanterns illuminates the table top. The romance of candlelight elevates the dining experience in this casual gathering area.
Wanting the home to really speak to its surroundings, the David Landscape Design team layered the side yard with gravel walkways, garden beds and hedges. In turn, this outdoor space feels just as natural as the rest of the property.
A charming stepping stone path leads from the front lawn around to the back of the house. The garden includes purple salvia, allium and geranium 'Rozanne'; white peony, viburnum, azalea, rhododendron 'multimaculatum' and Cornus Kousa; and yellow Chamaecyparis, and Alchemilla. For year-round interest, there are evergreen Ilex Glabra and ornamental grasses.
For the outside of the house, designers used milled slats of cypress wood called Shou Sugi Ban, which have been charred, brushed and oiled. It's a low-maintenance material that also provides a crisp contrast with the home's light-colored interior.
There is something both intimate and luxurious in this exquisite layout by Carl Gilley Landscape Design that incorporates a patio, lap pool and veranda into an idyllic outdoor living space on a side yard.
