Homeowner Rod Rusyniak is an avid gardener who tries to find time every day to walk his Atlanta yard. His yard boasts a dramatic pitch that rises into the hillside of his backyard and a network of winding paths and terraces for a putting green, storybook potting shed, dog house, fire pit and much more.
This colorful Craftsman home has lots of curb appeal with a beautifully landscaped front yard. The terraced yard matches the terrain with the style of the house, creating a beautiful facade for this unique home.
White, terracing masonry walls match the home's aesthetic while giving it the feeling that it extends fingers out into the landscape, helping to outline the entryways, parking area and turf areas of the home.
This stone-framed home exudes curb appeal with a terraced front yard and traditional brick walkway. A classic stone mailbox adds to the charm, as do manicured hedges, soft ground covers and graceful mature trees.
To complement the yard's natural slope, the landscape architects built a terraced travertine deck that descends towards the pool house. Grassy levels and plants add a touch of color along the way down.
A stacked stone water fountain is the focal point in this backyard garden. Below, large pavers surround a small pond leading to an elevated terrace. The multi-level yard allows for fun and intriguing travel through the lush landscaping.
To add dimension to this front yard, the homeowners have used their steps to give the space height. Instead of adding plants of varying heights that could obstruct a direct view of the house, the homeowners have terraced their steps, and also their flowerbeds, to give their drought friendly front lawn a little extra pizzaz.
Nestled on a quiet hilltop, this Mediterranean style home boasts extraordinary views and seclusion. Terraced landscaping compliments the sloped front yard, allowing for unobstructed views from the home's multiple outdoor spaces.
