A bold red door welcomes you to this charming Tudor-style cottage with brick and half-timbering details. A beautiful front yard landscape features terracing sections for added depth, as seen on HGTV's Curb Appeal.
This eco-friendly Southwestern style landscaping features modern terraced steps to lead to the home's front door. The plants featured in this garden are drought resistant to stand up to the extreme temperatures of this home's desert location. Other aspects of this design include sustainable materials such as reclaimed stone for the gabion wall and the stone that requires no watering.
A large rectangular cast concrete fire pit warms bayside evenings. This outdoor area was originally a small sloping lawn. Designers terraced the yard with cast concrete walls and created new seating and outdoor entertaining areas.
This dramatic front yard features a six-foot-wide waterfall that plunges five feet to the lower terrace. Surrounding this water feature, the landscape is adorned with lush perennial and annual gardens. Large stones create gorgeous shapes and textures against the trimmed grass.
A combination of different stones gives this outdoor space a customized and visually interesting look. Stacked New England fieldstone is used throughout the backyard to create seating walls on the patio and retaining walls that terrace the yard. Antique cobblestone divides the bluestone patio to create a separate dining room and conversation area in front of the fireplace, and reclaimed granite is used to make the steps and pillars.
This exquisite estate in Plano, Tex., sits on a over two acres with an exceptional backyard and expansive level play yard. The refined outdoor living area has a huge grassy yard and terraced rock walls.
The home's front yard and driveway have subtle, but compelling landscaping. Bricks carve out a circle in front of the house and garage. Terraced garden beds accompany a flight of steps down to a lower patio.
The garden terrace of this industrial-style building with residences and retail features pink and green perennials that capture the sunlight of Portland, Oregon. The bold integration of nature and steel earned this project, called Yard, by 2.ink Studio an ASLA 2018 Honor Award.
During this colonial home's renovation, a screened porch was added to the rear elevation. The porch, which is connected to the family room by sliding French doors, features a sitting area, fireplace and dining area for 10. Both side yards — one housing the kids' play area and the other boasting an open terrace — are visible from the porch.
A curved pergola creates a gateway from the entry garden to the lower chalet. To create the terraced area along the hillside, the designer removed roughly 350 yards of soil to start getting the correct grades and to devise a system of French drains at the office. A continuing challenge is the private utilities running between the two buildings.
This super-cute playhouse sits center stage in this slightly terraced backyard. Kids and adults will not be able to resist the blue playhouse with its pink elliptical door and white window boxes. Patio seating provides a place where the adults can sit and watch the kids play. A wood fence encloses the yard so none of the kiddies can wander off.
