A stone retaining wall surrounds the backyard and swimming pool of this home adding a beautiful texture contrast against the lush green grass. Planted shrubbery creates a decorative topper to the wall and helps blend it with the natural surroundings.
A backyard landscape is bordered by tiers of sloping wooden fences and stone walls which complement preexisting stone details, including a sunken water feature in the foreground, and a contrasting elevated fire pit, contained by inlaid stone work, in the distance. A curving stone bench embedded with accent lighting joins the two features.
A stone fence provides an elegant border for an Alanta garden. The homeowner desired a garden view from every window, which resulted in seven garden rooms oriented in relation to the house, according to Harrison Design. The home has been on tours hosted by The Cultural Landscape Foundation and the Atlanta Botanical Garden.
This courtyard started out with the very interesting style of the arbor, which was made famous by architects Greene & Greene. Set in the Sierra Foothills, the landscape is made equally interesting with flagstone and Irish moss, potato vines and a diverse selection of lime and gray-colored low perennials.
To make the backyard feel as cohesive as possible, the landscape architects echoed details from the retaining wall in the home's columns. Thus, this pillar along the deck also includes a modern fountain and stone accents.
This gorgeous backyard has an oasis-like feel. Located below the infinity edge pool is a lounge-like seating area, which can only be reached by walking over the concrete stepping pads. Water spills over the stacked stone wall creating the sound of rain sticks.
This quiet backyard patio is located in the midst of tall trees and a variety of lively plants. Gray stone and boulders are used throughout the area, and a coordinating fire pit provides a spot for cozy relaxation.
